Royal Mail will temporarily stop Saturday letter deliveries until further notice due to staff shortages amid the coronavirus pandemic.
However most parcels like Tracked, Special Delivery and non-account services, will still be picked up and delivered as normal.
A spokesperson for the Communication Workers’ Union, told the Mirror they will be seeking urgent discussions with the government on the issue of cancelled Saturday letter deliveries.
They added that the “reduction of the Universal Service Obligation was a key factor in our live national strike ballot”, and said the union does not want to call a strike, “but we will not sit back and see our members’ jobs put at threat and the service to the public worsened”.
