Both sides in the negotiations have agreed to extend the  deadline to midnight tonight.

In a message to its membership, CUP-W  says “We worked hard all weekend with the assistance of Special Mediator William Kaplan and the head of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services, Guy Baron, in an attempt to finalize our negotiations.  As requested by the mediators, the parties have agreed to extend the 72-hour notice under Section 87.2 of the Canada Labour Code for 24 hours. This means all job action is postponed until 00:01AM on Tuesday, August 30th.  Also, all changes of employment are postponed for the 24-hour period and the collective agreements remain in effect.”



No job action today?

Thank goodness, my Domino’s flyer will still show up!

Hart Guy, you can always order pizza on line so no need to worry if the union decides to strike. I just hope there are no layoffs at the recycling plants as there will be significantly less paper coming through.

“No Postal Job Action Today” .. that can be taken a couple of different ways. I didn’t see any postal workers out today so apparently no job action was taken.
