Tonnes of catalogues, brochures and other advertising mail across the Rhine and Ruhr areas of central and northeastern Germany will go undelivered.
About a million letters were also expected to go undelivered in Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
Verdi and Deutsche Post were unable to agree over the weekend on wages, shifts and layoff protection for 130,000 workers across Germany. The strike began on Sunday night.
