Post Office staff return to work

Fri, 14 Dec 2018

Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO) who went on the picket line have returned to their positions this morning.

Simon Kneen, Chief Executive of IOMPO said, “We have been extremely pleased with how our robust contingency worked, especially in the build up to our busiest weekend. Although there was no Island-wide doorstop delivery of standard post, we were able to process over 4,000 priority Special Delivery and Parcelforce items. All collections were undertaken and processed to ensure they left the Island on time on Thursday and they are scheduled to leave on time on Friday to make the connection with the Royal Mail network. It’s anticipated the standard volume of mail will be despatched from the Island, with over three tonnes on Thursday alone.”

He added, “We are incredibly grateful to those staff who came in during the strikes and worked longer hours to ensure we were able to minimise disruption to our valued customers and clients. I must also thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this period.”
He concluded, “We look forward to returning to normal service and helping to deliver Christmas for our customers as we do every year. However, our negotiations with the Communication Workers Union (CWU) remain ongoing and a further round of talks will be held in the New Year.”
