Business as usual at Canada Post in Niagara

It should be business as usual at Canada Post outlets in Niagara today. 

Yesterday rotating strike action affected St. Catharines, Fort Erie, Smithville and Welland.

The union representing the workers says they returned to work early this morning after striking for 24 hours. 

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

Canada Post has said that the rotating strikes have affected operations in more than 70 communities across the country, causing backlogs that could delay mail delivery to its customers for several days.

Our local municipal governments have been advising residents not to send any time sensitive information or bill payments through the mail system until the labour dispute is resolved.
