“The contract between Canada Post and the CUPW expired in 2015. A work stoppage would affect 40,000 employees, including mail delivery personnel.
In anticipation of a possible work stoppage, governments and other companies are making alternate arrangements for essential paper mail to be made available.”
See Canada Post service disruption possible in July, preparations now underwayI have several items in the pipeline from China: a network switch and new mice and … If it doesn’t arrive next week, I could be out of luck for quite a while. Other items are coming from Amazon.ca. I have more hope for them. They are due next week. This will raise the price of IT here as I may need to use couriers.
PS: I happened to meet someone who works in the PO… The flow of mail from China has been stopped at Vancouver to avoid piles in closed POs all over Canada. I think this means that if my mail is not already close by, I’ll have to wait until the work resumes after the labour actions. Shucks!
