CUPW targets additional cities in Ontario and Quebec, returns in Newfoundland and Labrador

Posted on Nov. 05, 2018 by Canada Post in Customer Alerts

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strike action Pickering, Ont., Saguenay Lac St-Jean and Mont-Joli in Quebec, while continuing strikes in major cities in Alberta.

Here is a list of communities where CUPW is currently conducting strikes:

In Alberta: Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Lethbridge.

In Ontario: Scarborough delivery facilities, including the York Distribution Centre which processes parcels for the east portion of the Greater Toronto Area; Brantford, Guelph, Simcoe, Fort Erie, St. Catharines, Welland; Barrie; London; Ajax, Markham, Unionville, Richmond Hill, Stouffville, Thornhill, Whitby, Willowdale, Don Mills, Maple, Vaughan; Echo Bay, Wawa, White River.

Meanwhile, the strike has ended in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.; and in Newfoundland and Labrador: Carbonear, Gander-Lewisporte, Stephenville, St. Anthony, Deer Lake, Grand Falls-Windsor, Stephenville Crossing, Corner Brook, Channel-Port-aux-Basques.

Since October 22, CUPW’s rotating strikes have now shut down Canada Post operations in more than 90 communities across the country.

Canada Post has been working hard to minimize the service impact to Canadians, but the union’s escalating strikes continue to cause backlogs in our national, integrated delivery network. 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.
