The Finnish Post has updated us that the postal workers’ union has called a strike, which is taking place from 11-24 November 2019. Some transport trade unions and members of the aviation trade union have also announced their support for the strike who plan to target mail handling at airports.
Finnish Post is therefore suspending both inbound and outbound airmail as the office of exchange will not be able to operate during the strike period. This applies to letter post, parcel post and EMS items.
As a result, mail services will experience a delay during the strike as processing and deliveries will be affected and immediately after the strike period, subject to any backlog.
