Canada Post's rotating strike hits several New Brunswick communities

Rotating strike action by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers has made its way to New Brunswick.

Canada Post says CUPW has begun strikes in Fredericton, St. Stephen, Woodstock, Miramichi, Acadie Bathurst, Campbellton, and Edmundston.

The postal service says CUPW has also shut down Canada's largest processing centre in Toronto got the second time in three weeks, which it says will add to the 150 trailers of packets and parcels waiting to be unloaded and processed at Canada Post facilities.

Lisa Moreau, First Vice President of CUP-W Fredericton Oromocto says her members are over-worked and suffer labour related injuries at a rate of five times that of other federal sector employees.

Workers walked off the job at 6 a.m. this morning, along with locals in Quebec City and La Tuque, Quebec, and eleven communities across Ontario.
