The rotating strike could hit very close to home, if the rumours are true!
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is going after larger and larger centres as it continues rotating strikes.
Postal workers in Montreal are the latest to walk off the job in a 24-hour strike following earlier walkouts in Winnipeg and Hamilton.
There’s been some talk on the picket lines that Toronto may be the next target.
An estimated 64 per cent of the country’s mail goes through Toronto.
“Our facilities are the size of a million square feet so a lot of mail and a lot of parcels move through Toronto, Canada Post spokesman Jon Hamilton told 680News.
Shutting down service in the city even for a single day would be felt GTA-wide.
“The national executive board has not made a decision who’s going out next, Irwin Nanda, the head of the Toronto branch of CUPW said.
According to Nanda, the post office can easily end this before it reaches Toronto.
“I understand there might be some angst in putting mail in the system right now, but I believe that the sooner the corporation gets back to us, we can keep this thing moving forward and get a settlement,” he explained.
Are you feeling the strike, yet? Concerned?
