If action goes ahead disruption is likely to mailings sent on the Association’s behalf by Warners Group Publications. This will affect new member packs, replacement magazines, SMT back issues and special publications orders.
Warners will continue to prepare mailings as usual, however there may be a delay in them being delivered to recipients.
