CUPW begins new strikes in Drummondville and Rimouski QC, and in Goose Bay, Labrador City and Wabush NL

Posted on Nov. 08, 2018 by Canada Post in Customer Alerts

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has begun job action in Drummondville and Rimouski, Quebec and in Goose Bay, Labrador City and Wabush NL.

Strikes continue in other regions in Quebec, including St-Hyacinthe, Farnham, Rivière-du-Loup, Matane, Chibougamau and Côte-Nord region including Baie-Comeau.

Strikes also continue in Cranbrook, Kamloops, Penticton, Quesnel, Vernon and Williams Lake, B.C., in Brantford, Oshawa, Guelph, Midland, Orillia and Parry Sound, Ont.

Meanwhile, strikes have ended in Truro, New Glasgow, Pictou, Antigonish, Port Hawkesbury, Breton, Sydney, Annapolis Valley, Bridgewater, Liverpool, Cumberland and Yarmouth, in Nova Scotia.

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.
