I have just been told there is to be a strike next Monday by Lewes Post Office.
I rang Royal Fail and they confirmed this.
Just a heads up as I had no idea last time they striked.

I nicely asked my postman if he would refrain from putting junk mail through my letterbox and he said "So I have to carry it all for nothing then?"
I didn't argue as I suppose he's right....

Dunno if posties have to carry it for nothing? Probably do.
Get a lot of junk mail shoved through the letter box... wondering if there's an opt out?

Read the link - it's the post offices that are going on strike, not the Royal Mail delivery staff. At least, that's what Zola's link says.

You can opt out Phil - you can do it online, google Mailing Preference Service.
Of course, you'll still get loads of bumph from your bank, BT etc.

I have filled in the forms for the E mail preference service,the phone preference service and the junk mail by post preference service.
I still get cold callers,still get spam in my E mails and get a heap of junk mail through my letterbox.
So that works ok then....

Yes,it's the post offices who are striking. The sorting office and deliveries will be made as normal.
I am going to have another word with my postie I think.
I don't mind junk which is addressed to me but I object to all the other stuff.

You can't get rid of the junk email that Royal Mail is paid to drop into your letter box. If you try they say that you'll also not get important missives from the tax people, local authorities etc.
Why have they chosen not to make a difference between the types of mail?
Cynical or what?

Christ!! Just throw it in the bin or recycling. its no extra work for anyone seeing as you have to throw the opened envelopes away anyway. I know its junk mail but people look at it! Thats all companies strategy in advertising and marketing - that you have seen it. They've got you to do exactly what they want without you realising! Genius Really!

Thanxs to ACT, Zola and all that contributed. LOL to Border Control... what a wonderful idea!
Have just registered with MPS.
Seem to recall using the Royal Mail "opt out" a while ago but must say I didn't notice much difference.
Mind you having read the terms it seems it only lasts for 2 years before you have to re-register.

wanderer postman deliver in all weathers. is it hard to throw the 'junk' mail in the re cycle bin, after all you are going to it anyway!!!

no they dont !
when its raining they do not deliver ,sad it maybe but i have watched on my day off and no postie on my road. You cant tell me everyone on that road had no post.
I have been tempted to send my phone in the post to track it and prove that fact but dont fancy waiting a few days
snd the point of saying no to junk mail is I do not want it and would rather it didnt clog up my letter box.
