Not signed for. Mind you, I did double the postage on it :-)

Nothing I have sent by 1st class has been affected by the strike - some
items were even delivered when delivery workers were meant to be on strike!
I suspect they are prioritising and 2nd class items are treated as just that
& are only processed once 1st class items have been sorted. As in everything
you get what you pay for.

Ordinary 1st class doesn't seem to be backed up at all here - ordered
something Sunday evening and received it today.
