Canada Post Strike Update June 6

Did you know Canada.. some more news from the Canada Post Strike. While Montreal ends their 1 day strike at 11:30pm The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says its Moncton and Victoria locals will begin 24-hour strikes in both cities at midnight tonight.

They are also saying that after careful consideration, Canada Post has again turned down an offer put forward by CUPW as part of labour negotiations.

The reason for the rejection they say is that the union’s latest offer does not offer realistic solutions to problems such as declining mail volumes, increasing competition, and electronic substitutions of traditional mail.

So at this point it's not looking good for the strike being resolved quickly as both sides continue to disagree.

  1. I can live with things as they are right now, I haven't had any sort of negative impact as of yet, and even if they do Ontario next. 1 day is survivable.
