While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has announced further strike action. CUPW has given notice that it intends to hold rotating strikes in the Greater Toronto Area, (excluding Scarborough) and most of the 905-region beginning after 12:01 am on Tuesday, October 23.

Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in Toronto during the rotating strike. However, Toronto is also a key processing hub for mail and parcels in Canada. The union’s rotating strike will therefore have a significant impact on our operations. Canada Post will make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country may see delays for parcel and mail delivery.

Canada Post continues to operate across the rest of Canada and is accepting and delivering mail and parcels in all other locations.

Canada Post has made significant offers to CUPW which include increased wages, job security, and improved benefits and has not asked for any concessions in return.

We value the relationship with the union and have been able to find common ground on some issues and have also committed to work together constructively on several important files. Those include working together to address employees workload concerns caused by parcel growth, additional financial services and going beyond pay equity for Rural and Suburban employees by extending job security and moving to one uniform for all delivery employees.

We remain committed to arriving at a negotiated settlement with CUPW, while making every effort to minimize the impact of any disruption on the customers we serve.
