Bad news for Canadians who rely on Canada Post: we could be without our postal service as early as Friday.
Canada Post has issued a 72-hour lockout notice to it’s employees, the latest in the long running contract dispute between the Crown corporation and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW).
Canada Post says the main reason for the notice is prolonged negotiations. However, CUPW is accusing the corporation of using this to drive it’s workers into accepting deep concessions, or taking job action.
The last time Canada Post had a work stoppage was in 2011.
But in our world of e-payments and e-billing, what will be the impact? Today on the Breakfast Buzz we want to know how will you be affected by a possible postal disruption?
