Christmas post 2022

Published: 08 December 2022

Royal Mail recommends that Christmas letters and parcels are posted as early as possible, particularly as last posting dates have had to be reviewed because of ongoing Communication Workers Union (CWU) industrial action.

Last posting dates for Christmas 2022 are as follows:

  • Monday 12 December – 2nd class
  • Friday 16 December – 1st class

Further information and any updates may be found on the last posting dates page of Royal Mail’s web site.

CWU members are taking national strike action on Friday 9, Sunday 11, Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 December.

More detail about the strikes and the services available during industrial action can be found on Royal Mail’s web site.
