Here’s What You Need to Know About the Canada Post Strike in Brampton
If you’re worried about disruptions to your mail services in Brampton, you’re not alone.
Members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) announced that they would head to the picket lines at 12:01 am on Tuesday, October 23, to begin the second day of postal disruptions across the country.
CUPW says job action will take place in the Greater Toronto Area (excluding Scarborough) and most of the 905 region.
"Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in Toronto during the rotating strike. However, Toronto is also a key processing hub for mail and parcels in Canada. The union's rotating strike will therefore have a significant impact on our operations," Canada Post said, adding that while efforts will be made to minimize the impact, customers across Canada may see delays for parcel and mail delivery.
This is a series of rotating strikes; they began last Sunday in Victoria, Halifax, Edmonton and Windsor. Mail services continue to operate across the rest of Canada and Canada Post is accepting and delivering mail and parcels in all other locations.
