As per European Union Directive 2002/39/EC the Royal Mail does have some competition now since early 2006. It is always a shame to see Union members cutting their own throats by striking in a way that upsets customers.
Let us know your experiences.
Does it happen a lot? Why? Does it seriously impact business when it does so?
I believe there are now around 15 companies now licensed to compete with Royal Mail, including the ones I mentioned.
Unfortunately the UK postal workers’ trade union, the CWU still thinks it is 1977, not 2007, and that their members working at Royal Mail are entitled to special treatment despite the realities of competition.

Nail on the head.
It's an unforunate fact that many people in the UK feel that they are owed a living by default, rather getting off their lazy bottoms and doing something to improve their personal situation.
Rant over :D
