The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has issued a strike notice, which means that they will be in a legal position to strike as early as Monday, October 22, 2018. Should rotating strike action occur, the postal service will continue to operate.
Impact to Customers
Rotating legal strikes may be isolated to one or two specific locations at a time, affecting those areas for a period of 24 hours. In that situation, Canada Post would continue to accept, process and deliver mail and parcels in all other areas. Once the temporary disruption ends, we would return to normal operations in the affected locations.
Canada Post is committed to arriving at a negotiated settlement that is not only best for its customers, its employees and our path forward with CUPW, but also for every Canadian we serve. We continue to pursue that goal while making every effort to minimize the impact of any disruption on the customers who rely on us every day.
