If deliveries cannot be done due to the strike, they will be taken care of and stored appropriately. Deliveries related to health and safety are limited outside of strikes and support measures.

Posti will inform its customers about the development of the situation and after the strikes are over, will try to return to the normal situation as quickly as possible.
