Due to Industrial Action by CWU Postal Workers, Royal Mail have announced that they will not be attending the forthcoming Stampex event in London.
The Royal Mail stand at Stampex has long been a popular destination for collectors attending the national stamp exhibition, but industrial action taking place at the same time as the event means there will be no Royal Mail stand this year.
The Royal Mail issued the following statement:
'Following the notice of Industrial Action by CWU Postal Workers on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October, Royal Mail Stamps and Collectibles has made the difficult decision to cancel our attendance at Stampex International scheduled to run from the 28 September to 1 October at the Business Design Centre in London.
'Our Stamps and Collectibles team would like to apologise to all our customers who were hoping to see us at Stampex. Unfortunately, it proved impossible to organise and staff a Royal Mail stand at the show during the strike action.'
Of course, there are many other attractions to enjoy at Stampex, as our preview of the 2022 event reveals.
