CUPW begins strikes at the Winnipeg plant and in several Ontario locations

November 15, 2018

While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strikes Thursday morning at the Winnipeg Mail Processing Plant and in Amherstburg, Strathroy, Sarnia and Milton, Ontario. Last night, strikes had also started in the greater Montreal region, Quebec and Saint John, New Brunswick. Strikes continue in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Meanwhile, strikes have now ended in the Greater Toronto Area, Niagara Falls, Stratford, Owen Sound and Windsor, Ontario 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 and Winnipeg key processing hubs

Canada Post has been working hard to maintain service to Canadians, but Montreal and Winnipeg are key processing hubs 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.
