The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has begun job action in Cranbrook, Kamloops, Penticton, Quesnel, Vernon and Williams Lake, B.C., and in Brantford, Oshawa, Guelph, Midland, Orillia and Parry Sound, Ont.
Strikes also continue in St-Hyacinthe, Farnham, Rivière-du-Loup, Matane, Chibougamau and Côte-Nord region including Baie-Comeau, Que., and in Truro, New Glasgow, Pictou, Antigonish, Port Hawkesbury, Breton, Sydney, Annapolis Valley, Bridgewater, Liverpool, Cumberland and Yarmouth, in Nova Scotia.
Meanwhile, strikes have ended in Belleville, Brockville, Cornwall, Kingston, Lindsay and Newmarket, Ont., as well as in all other locations in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick where job action was taking place yesterday.
Since October 22, CUPW’s rotating strikes have now shut down Canada Post operations in more than 150 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.
