CUPW hits Toronto again with rotating strikes, further impacting parcel delivery

Posted on Nov. 06, 2018 by Canada Post in Customer Alerts

While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have hit Canada’s largest processing centre in Toronto for a second time in three weeks. 

Since October 22, CUPW’s rotating strikes have now shut down Canada Post’s operations in more than 100 communities across the country. The union continues to escalate their strike activity, adding more communities each day and shutting down major processing centres for extended periods.    

CUPW is continuing strike action in parts of Ontario and Quebec. Meanwhile, strikes have ended in Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge, Alta.; Scarborough and Pickering, ON.

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

In Ontario: Amherstburg, Barrie, Delhi, London, Newmarket, Owen Sound, Sarnia, and St. Thomas

In Quebec: Rouyn-Noranda, La Sarre, Val-d’Or, Hautes-Laurentides, Mont-Joli, and Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean

Canada Post will continue to make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country can expect delays of several days for parcel and mail delivery.  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.
