While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strike action in Moncton. Since October 22, CUPW’s rotating strikes have now shut down Canada Post’s operations in more than 60 communities across the country.
CUPW is also conducting strikes in Hamilton, Ottawa and North Bay, Ont., in Regina, Sask., and in the Outaouais and Mauricie regions of Quebec.
Canada Post has been working hard to minimize the service impact to Canadians, but the union’s escalating strikes have shut down our three largest processing facilities in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal for up to 48 hours. As a result, customers could see delays of several days.
Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in impacted areas while the union continues their strike activity. We thank our customers for their continued patience and apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.
