Possible postal strike.

Post by Head Honcho » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:24 pm

Whaaaaaat, how can this be?

Canadian postal workers have voted in favour of strike action, with the union president saying members are overworked.

Strike votes were held at locals across the country between Aug. 7 and Sept. 9, with 93.8 per cent of urban postal operations workers and 95.9 per cent of rural and suburban mail carriers voting to walk out if an agreement can't be reached with Canada Post.

That could happen as early as Sept. 26, shutting down mail delivery, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers has warned.

Working for Canada Post is generally not that great from what I've heard.

If a strike happens there is Purolator which ironically is owned by Canada Post. The employees there are also unionized but under a different union. For some reason, whenever there are labour issues there they aren't in the media all of the time.

Purolator up in Timmins was awesome.

Down here, they are the most inept & lazy....but that is my opinion.

Will anyone under 65 notice that CPC isn't delivering?

Screw CPC....go Brown!

UPS is the best down here, IMO.
