Canada Post strikes continue in Kelowna

CUPW workers are in negotiation according to Canada Post

Negotiations continue into the Canada Union of Post Workers’ (CUPW) fifth week of strikes, in Woodstock, St. Thomas, Chatham, Ontario and in Kelowna.

Canada Post is warning that while postal service remains operational it is unable to honour delivery standards because of the prolonged and ongoing rotating strikes.

They also state that the strike has created a massive backlog of mail and parcels in their network before they expect millions more parcels from Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

Customers across the country are asked to expect delays, with the worst areas hit being southern and southwestern Ontario.
