While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strikes Thursday morning at the Winnipeg Mail Processing Plant and in Amherstburg, Strathroy, Sarnia and Milton, Ontario. Last night, strikes had also started in the greater Montreal region, Quebec and Saint John, New Brunswick. Strikes continue in St. John’s, Newfoundland.
Montreal and Winnipeg key processing hubs
Canada Post has been working hard to maintain service to Canadians, but Montreal and Winnipeg are key processing hubs for mail and parcels in Canada. The union’s rotating strikes will therefore 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.
We thank our customers for their continued patience and apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.
