The nation’s postal service has come to a standstill today because of a strike.

Staff maintaining sorting equipment at An Post centres in Dublin, Cork, Portlaoise and Athlone are striking due to a dispute over losses of earnings that have resulted from new rostering arrangements for IO Systems' workers.

An Post advised customers not to post anything with immediate effect from today. Also, no mail collections from businesses will be possible today.

An Post have issued this statement,

Due to the withdrawal of labour by staff of IO Systems, we are unable to process mail for delivery to customers.

Mail deliveries are operating as normal today. A small number of letters were not processed last night due to the industrial action between IO Systems and the CWU.

An Post greatly regrets this inconvenience to our customers and urges the parties involved to resolve their differences through the normal industrial relations procedures.

Post Offices retail services are operating as normal.

As of yet, it's unclear when the normal postal services will resume.
