The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has started strikes early Friday morning in Ottawa (except Woodlawn), Timmins, Welland, Maple, Stouffville, St. Catharines, Niagara Falls, Fort Erie, and at the Richmond Hill concept store in Scarborough, Ontario, as well as in the Sherbrooke area and in Sainte-Thérèse-de-Blainville, Quebec.   

Strikes continue in Campbell River, Courtenay, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Williams Lake, Columbia River, Quesnel, Salmon Arm, Revelstoke, Dawson Creek and Cranbrook, B.C., and in Sioux Lookout, Atikokan, Geraldton and Dryden, Ont.

Meanwhile, strikes have ended in Kamloops, B.C., Calgary, Alta., Elliot Lake, Blind River, Pickering and Ajax, Ont.

Canada Post remains at the table to find the common ground needed to reach a settlement with the union. We continue to operate in an attempt to minimize further service impacts.

The union remains in a legal strike position. While the government has introduced back to work legislation, customers can expect delays for the foreseeable future.
