Union endorses mail dispute deal 23 October 2007

Isle of Man Post Office is delighted to advise customers that following months of industrial action in the UK, the Communication Workers Union Executive (CWU) has ratified a national agreement with Royal Mail to settle the long-running dispute over pay and flexible working conditions. The announcement was made yesterday and the deal is now subject to a ballot of union members.

This is good news for Isle of Man Post Office customers who have been affected by the industrial action. Royal Mail is continuing to clear the build-up of mail in the UK and while Isle of Man Post Office staff work hard to clear any backlog as quickly as possible, customers are asked to bear with us if delivery times are a little later than normal.

The guarantee for the Special Delivery service, including items sent to and from the Liverpool postcode area which had been suspended, has now been reinstated and the service is operating as normal. Isle of Man Post Office expects other services to and from the UK to improve considerably over the next few days and advises customers to post as normal.

Isle of Man Post Office would like to thank customers for their patience and understanding during this period of postal disruption in the UK.
