The CWU has formally notified Royal Mail they plan to call on their members who collect, sort and deliver parcels and letters to take national strike action on, Friday 9 December, Sunday 11 December, Wednesday 14 December and Thursday 15 December 2022.

This is expected to cause significant disruption to Royal Mail services.

Royal Mail does have contingency plans; however, they cannot fully replace the daily efforts of its frontline workforce. Therefore, the British Deer Society expects delays to its postal service not only on the strike days themselves but also on subsequent days while the service resumes and deals with any backlogs.

Yes, the following BDS services will be affected and are likely to experience longer delivery times.

  • Postal communications including membership letters and cards
  • The delivery of orders from the BDS shop
  • DSC1 Manualsand certificates
  • Any other postal requests

We ask our customers and members to be understanding and patient during this period of disruption as we will do our best to send postal items and communications to you as quickly as possible.

If you require items from BDS before Christmas we recommend placing orders before the 10th of December 2022.
