CUPW strikes return to Montreal and Saint John, continue in St. John's and Southern Ontario

November 14, 2018

While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strikes on Wednesday evening in Montreal, Quebec and Saint John, New Brunswick. Strikes also continue in St. John's, Newfoundland and in Niagara Falls, Stratford, Owen Sound and Windsor, Ontario.

Meanwhile, strikes have now ended in the Greater Toronto Area and in Halifax, Dartmouth, Lakeside and Tantallon, Nova Scotia.

Since October 22, CUPW's rotating strikes have shut down Canada Post's operations in more than 200 communities across the country.

Montreal a key processing hub

Canada Post has been working hard to maintain service to Canadians, but Montreal is a key processing hub for mail and parcels in Canada. The union's rotating strikes will therefore have a significant impact on our operations. Canada Post will make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country will continue to see delays for parcel and mail delivery.

We thank our customers for their continued patience and apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.
