The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has begun job action in Whitehorse, Y.T., in Creston, Elk Valley, Golden, Grand Forks, Kimberley, Kitimat, Powell River, Prince Rupert, Salmon Arm, Revelstoke, Smithers, Sunshine Coast and Terrace, B.C., and in Hawkesbury, Alexandria, Napanee, Collingwood, Muskoka, Pembroke, Hearst, Englehart, New Liskeard and Kirkland Lake, Ont.
Rotating strikes also continue in Gaspé area, Granby area (including Acton Vale, Eastman, Sutton and Cowansville), Drummondville and Rimouski, Que., in Goose Bay, Labrador City and Wabush, N.L., and in Kamloops, B.C.
Meanwhile, strikes have ended in Cranbrook, Penticton, Quesnel, Vernon and Williams Lake, B.C., and in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia communities where strikes had started yesterday morning.
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.
