F.Y.I. Canada Post

on Jul 05, 2016 @ 09:08 pm

Just an FYI ladies, Canada Post just issued their 72 hours lockout today. By Friday, there will be a shutdown. Government is not stepping in this time :(

Hopefully all you ladies have received your Vichy or other mail parcels before Friday.

Frankly with the terrible service I usually get I often wonder how are they still in business :(
But yes I do worry about my parcels and letters. If they go on a strike it could last several months and considering half the time I get someone else's mail already, I don't even want to think about how bad would it be for them to deal with a massive backlog :(

Hopefully the strike won't last too long and they'll come to an agreement soon. I feel bad for those who rely on disability income through the mail. I know pensions will still be delivered, as they are essential, but not sure about the rest.

Yes I saw that this afternoon and I was a little disappointed. I'm waiting on a few contest wins and won another one today. Guess I'll have to wait like all of us. Lets hope it doesn't last too long.

@irememberu, congrats! What did you win? Sorry, I have to ask, I love hearing about contest wins. :)

I really hope they resolve the strike quickly. Yes, I really feel bad for the people waiting on checks or important documents. If this goes on for months I hope they use alternative couriers.

I'm waiting on four wins from Cottonelle, vitamins, and this morning found out i won the hard cover cook book .

I don't receive that much mail, but for people who depend on it for most things this is gonna be tough. I hope it doesn't last too long, even though Canada is pro technology we still need the mail system to get certain things done

Thanks for the update. Haven't put the news on yet this week :/
Hopefully everything gets settled quickly.

Thank you! Luckily I just received my Vichy products but this will be useful when ordering things online.

I had hoped there would be a solution before this happened but it's not looking optimistic.
On the subject of government issued checks, I switched to direct deposit for my widows pension a while back. It's super easy, your bank can do it for you. If there is ever an interruption in postal deliveries, you will not stuffer the financial setback.
Let's hope this is over quickly.
