Canada Post Strike June 15

Update with good news:  Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt has given 48 hours notice of her intention to introduce a bill to end Canada Post's lockout.

Did you know Canada.. we've woken up to some bad news today.. Following 12 days of increasingly costly rotating strikes by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), Canada Post has suspended operations across the country.

The believe that a lockout is the best way to bring a timely resolution to this impasse and force the union to seriously consider proposals that address declining mail volumes and the $3.2-billion pension deficit.

So just to reiterate: There will be no mail delivery across the country until the strike is resolved.

  3. This just may ruin my baby girls first birthday. I haven't even gotten the invitations to mail out. Now I will have to try to call all the intended guests (102ppl) to see if they will be able to make it. Thanks alot!
