Do you ship to Canada? Labor dispute could affect Canada Post service

ShipWorks-blog-post-image-canada-post-service-disruptionDue to a labor dispute between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Canada Post is warning customers that “while there is still time to reach new agreements, customers should take precautions as a labour disruption remains a possibility.”

According to Canada Post, a 21-day “cooling-off” period is about to end, and there can be no legal work disruption until on or after July 2, 2016. If a labor disruption does occur, Canada Post warns customers that mail and parcels won’t be delivered, with no new items accepted. Any pieces already in the mailstream at the time of a labor disruption “will be secured and delivered as quickly as possible once operations resume.”
