Canada Post strikes continue as negotiations remain stalled

Canada Post strikes continue as negotiations remain stalled

According to a release issued by the CUPW, as of Sunday night, 1,400 more employees from the London and Barrie locals joined 1,800 employees across the country participating in the strike action.

The union representing Canada Post employees has launched a new round of rotating strikes in Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Guelph is one of the latest sites for targeted job actions by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.

The strike meant no mail was going out of the Canada Post depot on Roy Boulevard or from retail outlets in Brantford and Paris, said Cuda.

An updated list of locals participating in the rotating strikes can be found on the CUPW website.

"Until we get confirmation from the national executive, we don't know when it will end", said Oduor, who noted the last action on October 24-25 ended after one day.

The postal service and the union have been unable to reach new collective agreements for two bargaining units after 10 months of negotiations.

In recent years, said Hamilton, the corporation's parcel deliveries have seen double-digit yearly increases.

"We don't want to shut down the postal service completely but we do want to make an impact on the employer - they're not being very forthcoming at the bargaining table", said Jarema.

"For the rural mail carriers, it's time paid for time worked", says Slingsby.

"We are entering our third week of rotating strikes because management stills refuses to address the urgent health and safety issues that have left postal workers the most injured group of workers in the federal sector", said CUPW National President Mike Palecek.

Negotiations are continuing while rotating strikes take place.

But he said Canada Post has made significant offers on wages, benefits and working conditions and "we're not asking them for concessions or rollbacks".
