Canadian postal services are always ready for innovations and using it to help and serve the Canadian people. Postal services is a very important piece of modern life, millions of people and businesses rely on postal deliveries every day, so when it comes to striking of postal workers it will have a huge impact on the everyday life of smaller towns, big cities and industries, and the whole countries. The Canadian postal workers' rotation strike “has come” to Winnipeg and Brandon. Manitoba was the last province hit by members of the Canadian Postal Workers Union (CUPW).
CUPW reports that 1,500 people left work in Winnipeg at 10 pm local time on Sunday, November 11th and that workers are in Brandon, Manitoba supported the strike on midnight. The union said the Canada Post should sit down at the negotiating table to discuss the following issues: health and safety, equality for rural and suburban postal carriers and the suspension of unsustainable work.
The protesters, ignoring the court’s decision to end the rotational strike of postal employees, continue to block access roads to the Canada Post sorting center in Ottawa.
Last night in Halifax, police arrested six activists who interfered with the movement of postal trucks. According to Canada Post on their twitter, they will continue to take action against those who interfere with mail delivery and violate the law.
The strike was organized by the Ottawa Revolutionary Communist Party Department and the International Workers of the World, said picketers spokesman Alex Miller.
“We are blocking the sorting of mail in solidarity with the workers of Canada Post. We want to show that they are not alone in their struggle, that we believe that they cannot be forced to work until they are provided with better working conditions, ”said the activist holding a banner with a hammer and sickle.
The chances of receiving packages and purchases within a reasonable time, as well as gifts for Christmas and New Year, among Canadians, are melting away every winter day.
In a press release, CUPW said: “Canada Post has taken some steps to address our key priorities, but we have a long way to go to achieve an agreed collective agreement.”
So now when the Canada Post employees are striking, the packages are not being delivered on time, customers are not happy and the online and offline stores losing business.
