Potential Canada Post Work Stoppage

Posted by Stuart Rosenfarb on

With the possibility of a Canada Post work stoppage coming as soon as July 2nd, we want to assure you that we've worked out other shipping options. If there is a Canada Post service interruption, we have other couriers lined up, though shipping times could be slightly longer in some cases.

All orders placed before June 23rd will be shipped using the standard Canada Post Expedited or Xpresspost service and we encourage you to get your orders in before that date to avoid possible shipping delays.

IMPORTANT for anyone using a PO BOX or a Flex Box: in the event of a work stoppage, you will need to identify a civic address for your shipments, since couriers do not ship to these Canada Post-operated locations.

  • UPDATE AS OF JULY 10, 2016

    Postal service will not be interrupted while talks continue

    Canada Post has withdrawn its 72-hour notice, which was to take effect Monday, July 11. As a result, there will be no lockout. We also expect the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) to honour what it has said publicly on many occasions – that they wish to negotiate and have no plans to issue a strike notice.

    We therefore expect mail service to continue without interruption, and we will once again start shipping via Canada Post and offering free expedited shipping on all orders over $100. In the event of a strike or lockout, either party has to issue a 72-hour notice and should this occur we would advise you immediately and switch over to FedEx immediately to prevent your order from being trapped in the postal system.

  • UPDATE AS OF JULY 5, 2016

    Canada Post has issued a 72-hour notice to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW-Urban and CUPW-RSMC), which represent our delivery agents and plant employees.

    The issuing of the notice does not necessarily mean that Canada Post will not be operating on Friday. It allows the Corporation to take measures that are necessary to respond to the changing business reality. It is doing so by changing the terms and conditions of employment for all employees represented by the union starting Friday, July 8, 2016.

    There can be no legal work disruption before 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 8, 2016.
