Here’s the latest update on the ongoing Canada Post strike. 

CUPW has stopped rotating strikes in Grande Prairie, Alta., Regina, Sask., Timmins, Ont., St. John’s, N.L., and Hamilton, Ont., but the strike continues in other locations, according to a recent Canada Post press release. 

Canada Post has been working to minimize the impact the strike has on Canadians, but the three largest processing facilities, located in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal, have been shut down for up to 48 hours. 

These three plants combined process a million parcels and packets a day for communities across Canada and are vital to Canada Post’s national, integrated delivery network.

There are currently trailers full of parcels, packets and mail waiting to be unloaded and processed that are backlogged in these plants, with more arriving. 

Once processed, these items have to be delivered without overburdening Canada Post delivery employees. 

Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in impacted areas during the strike.
