The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strikes this morning in Niagara Falls, Stratford, Owen Sound and Windsor, Ontario. The union also started rotating strikes last night in the region of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Meanwhile, strikes have now ended in major processing facilities in the Toronto area and at the York Distribution Centre in Scarborough, but other union members are still on strike in Toronto, Mississauga, Etobicoke, Brampton and Concord, Ontario, as well as in parts of Nova Scotia including Halifax, Dartmouth, Lakeside, and Tantallon.
Since October 22, CUPW's rotating strikes have shut down Canada Post's operations in more than 200 communities across the country.
Canada Post has been working hard to maintain service to Canadians, but the union's recent strikes in Toronto's and Vancouver's major processing hubs caused further backlogs of trailers and continue to have a significant impact on our operations. Canada Post will make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country will continue to see delays 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.
