Rotating postal strikes in Ottawa and Outaouais have ended

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers say rotating postal strikes in Ottawa and the Outaouais have ended.

Postal workers in Ottawa walked off the job Wednesday morning at 6:00 a.m. and were on strike for two days. The strike in the Outaouais began at 5:00 a.m. Thursday.

Strikes move to Kitchener-Waterloo today, joining striking workers in Hamilton, Moncton, and Regina.

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

Canada Post says it has provided "significant'' offers to its employees, including wage hikes, but CUPW says it falls far below expected cost-of-living increases.
