Canada Post Extends Lockout Deadline

Thursday, July 7, 2016 @ 6:00 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Canada Post has extended its lockout deadline to 12 am  eastern time Monday .

The move was made following a request from the Minister of  Labour, MaryAnn Mihychuk  that both Canada Post and the  Canadian Union of Postal workers  submit to binding arbitration.

Canada Post issued this  notice last night “While negotiated settlements are always the preferred option, it has become clear that after seven months of negotiations, the parties remain far apart on key issues at the bargaining table. The uncertainty caused by the prolonged negotiations is having a severe impact on the business, our employees and our customers.

It is our hope that CUPW will consider submitting to binding arbitration to end the uncertainty. Canada Post is extending the current 72-hour notice period to Monday at 12:01 am to provide time for the union to consider this option. A quick resolution is in the best interest of our employees, our customers and the long-term future of the postal system.”


Anyone know if one of the top CEO’s for Canada post has shares in another delivery services.
That’s the scuttle butt I am hearing.
If so this is a huge conflict of interest.

Seems so weird.. All these years they keep telling us our street is a parttime route and when they find extra person, they’ll deliver mail.. Since this impending strike became news, we been getting mail daily.. Anyhow… they trying to make it look like they work hard now?? Just wondering

Bring on the mail compartmentald boxes, it will work in all subdivisions, etc… Most of us do Internet anyway… And the old folk condo areas will still have delivery….. Just ask Amazon….l
