Delays Likely For International Shipping

International shipments into Canada are backlogged due to the rotating strike and Canada Post have asked international shippers to stop bringing them mail. And this of course means international letters and parcels that are not handled by private couriers like Fedex, UPS, DHL and Purolator will be delayed.

eBay has requested an end to the rotating strike through legislation but it appears that those taking advantage of the foreign Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers will need to either wait for their parcels or use couriers.

In regards to domestic shipments, Amazon.ca, Best Buy Canada, chapters.indigo.ca , Hudson Bay, Newegg.ca, Oldnavy.ca and many other online retailers have opted to go with their own courier services and/or offer ship to store services.

Please consult your favourite retailer for shipping options.

Rotating Postal Strikes

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers have begun rotating strikes in Victoria (British Columbia), Edmonton (Alberta), Windsor (Ontario) and Halifax (Nova Scotia) until midnight, when other locations will be chosen. Please consult the union’s official site for information on the upcoming sites for this strike.

Postal Strike Talks This Weekend

Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers will be in meetings this weekend to avert a possible postal strike.

Postal Strike Imminent?

Several banking institutions and internet providers have issued warnings about the possibility of a postal strike. And online retailers like Amazon.ca, chapters.indigo.ca and Newegg.ca, are readying alternative shipping methods for their clients.

I believe all three retailers have a shipping option to deliver parcels to your local post office and some retailers also deliver to their stores. But many retailers have their own courier services so keep an eye on their sites and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers site for details.

Canada Post Strike?

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers have voted for job action if no agreements are reached by Sept. 26. I will keep an eye on the situation and will update this page asap.

Canadian Postal Strike Update

Although both parties have agreed to negotiate using a special mediator, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers will be in a legal strike position as of 11:59pm Sunday, August 28, 2016.

It appears that Amazon.ca, Banana Republic Canada, chapters.indigo.ca, Gap Canada, Jysk Canada, Newegg.ca, Old Navy Canada, Sears.ca and Staples are still using alternatives so people using those retailers should have few issues if a strike were to happen.
