Undelivered Postal Matter Backing-Up At Canada Post Hubs

Canada Post Trucks Backed Up as Strikes Move; Overtime Now Banned 2018-11-05

Dear Valued Customer,
 
Canada Post is facing a days-long backlog of parcel deliveries as scattered walkouts by postal workers escalate across the country, the Crown corporation warned Wednesday, hours before the Canadian Union of Postal Workers was set to call a national overtime ban.
 
Dozens of trailers filled with parcels and packages were awaiting processing at the agency’s three biggest hubs as Canada Post employees from several Quebec communities joined countrywide rotating strikes a day after about 6,000 workers walked off the job in Montreal.
 
“At this point there is a backlog of over 150 trailers in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal of items waiting to be unloaded and processed, with more arriving every day,” said Canada Post spokesman Jon Hamilton.
 
“Once processed, these items have to be delivered without overburdening our delivery employees. As a result, customers could see delays of several days.”
