Negotiations Update
  Mailing and shipping recommendations in advance of potential work disruption

Dear customer,

Although a formal conciliation period ended on June 10, 2016, labour negotiations between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) continue.

We are committed to reaching separate collective agreements with CUPW-Urban and CUPW-RSMC, which together represent our delivery agents and plant workers.

Talks have been ongoing since late 2015 and, following a 60-day conciliation period, the parties are now in a 21-day “cooling-off” period. Based on that timeline, there can be no legal work disruption until July 2, 2016.

While there is still time to reach new agreements, customers should take precautions as a labour disruption remains a possibility.

In the event of a full labour disruption, Canada Post will not operate. Mail and parcels will not be delivered, and no new items will be accepted. Any mail and parcels within the postal system during a work disruption will be secured and delivered as quickly as possible once operations resume.

To ensure delivery prior to a possible service disruption, customers are encouraged to send items on or before the dates below. Items sent after these dates could be held in the postal system. Please confirm the applicable service standards in your shipping system before inducting your shipment.

Thank you for your Thank you for your business and your patience.
