STRIKE! Canada Post Hit By Rotating Walkouts As Holidays Begin

Last updated 11-19-18 by Canada Post:

Just in time for the holidays, the Canada Post strike drags on with rotating walkouts slowing or stopping service.

“Canada Post has been working hard to maintain service to Canadians, but Toronto is a key processing hub for mail and parcels in Canada,” according to Canada Post. “The union’s rotating strikes will therefore have a significant impact on our operations and cause further backlogs of trailers. 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.”

Here are the latest updates:

CUPW shuts down most of Manitoba, continues strikes in Victoria, Edmonton, Ontario and New Brunswick

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strikes on Friday in the main cities of Manitoba: Winnipeg (except the processing plant), Brandon, Portage la Prairie, The Pas, Dauphin, Flin Flon and Thompson. Strikes also started Friday in Edmonton, Alta. and in Port Hope, Orangeville and Markham, Ont. Strikes also continue in Victoria (B.C.), Moncton and Saint John, N.B., and in one letter carrier depot in downtown Toronto.
Meanwhile, strikes have ended in Montreal, St. John’s, and in other locations in Ontario.
The strikes are now into their fourth week and have touched virtually every Canada Post facility and every Canadian address so far.

Canada Post has been working hard to minimize the service impact to Canadians, but the union’s strikes continue to cause unprecedented backlogs in our 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.

Canada Post suspends its service delivery guarantees due to delays caused by the union’s escalating rotating strikes

Unfortunately, the growing impact of the union’s rotating strikes on postal operations across the country means Canada Post must suspend its service delivery guarantees until further notice.

We will continue to make best efforts to deliver, but the union’s strike efforts have caused significant backlogs and delays throughout our network. As of today, our major processing centre in Vancouver was shut down from Friday evening to Tuesday morning and Toronto is now shut down, significantly impacting our ability to process mail and parcels. In Toronto alone, more than 180 trailers full of parcels, packets and mail sit idle as the union shuts down the facility for a third time in less than a month. Striking to shut down a processing facility not only impacts our operations at that location, it chokes the flow of mail and parcels to our delivery facilities.
