Comments "Canada Post asks foreign mail services to stop shipments":
Author: SamujasOur country is full of people that would be honoured to work for those pay and benefits, high time that the employees that are walking off good paying jobs with pension and benefits remember that! How many of the Sears employees would be willing to take one of those jobs?
Author: MoogukoraTheir strike is not effecting me at all. Let them strike all through winter in -40c weather. I will get some entertainment out of it.
Author: JusarCanada is not a developed country. Dont even have proper mail service.
Author: MikashicageWow Canada Post is few decades behind even third world countries. Just wow im astonished the only postal service that doesnt like work if all of those were paid then i don't see how there would be any conflict job mismanagement might be the issue.
Author: DibarGovernment Unions are greedy and need to be shutdown.
Author: KajishakarTHIS IS PROBABLY GOOD NEWS FOR ups and dhl
Author: GotPerfect! People need to relearn respect for Canadian institutions and the humans who make them excellent and necessary!
Author: MalataxeWhere can other countries hold Canada post? We need space too selfish it's your problem not ours.
Author: MalanrisJust do what they want, this is getting ridiculous..
Author: NizahnHey CBC you need to fire your sound guy. Harsh S sounds coming from the female news reporter in this clip. Your sound guy is supposed to fix that.
Author: ArashishoCanada post is broken, totally useless.
Author: KazigamiYour postal services are selfish taking away from the innocent this holiday season... Guess Canadians are as nice as they pretend
Author: DaigoreCanada Post strikes , people find better alternatives , volume drops , a 40 year cycle that will soon conclude in Canada Post ceasing to exist and stiffing taxpayers with a massive underfunded legacy of pensions and benefits .
Author: Nabeilool no one celebrates kwanza
Author: KigatGet back to work you lazy hosers! I've got packages to mail to my Canadian friends!
Author: VudogoreI’m new to Canada. Been living here for 2 years. I trusted Canada Post. But now stopping shipments of my Black Friday order? Really? I’m switching to amazon when I get my package.
Author: MagarSad that the United state postal service does better than Canada post
Author: ZuzilI totally get why they want to strike but before Christmas is just rediculous. They did it last year as well.
Author: AkinoshakarCanada Post is one of the worst post offices, period. I've lived in the UK and Australia, and the Royal Mail and even Australia Post are light years ahead of them. Shameful.
Author: DinrisI got a (step) family member who works there and it's a real joke. If you basically do a "normal day" of work you get bonuses.
Author: NakusI see both sides... however it is downright shameful that people cannot send mail to loved ones, because of a strike.
Author: DurisarCanada: The first world country, with a third world post office.
Author: AkinogalKeep sending mails to Canada Post. They should learn all the consequences for being so self centred.
Author: DaigisWe need to just make a new post office
Author: VozuruI guess that birthday card that I sent in beginning of October from the U.S. isn't going to get there until next year. :(
Author: KatShame on you Canada Post
Author: KecageThe timing of this strike is intentionally picked for added pressure. Nobody cares about customers. Maybe it's time to end the monopoly?
Author: ZulujarCanada Post needs to end. There are plenty of private entities that actually compete to provide service. Let them have it all.
Author: FelmaranThey gonna be a big backlog in mail delivery this season
Author: ArashigisCanada Post. You’ve disappointed all the Canadians.
Author: KarCANADA POST NEEDS TO OPEN POSTAL BANKING!!!
Author: BrazilkreeWhy aren't the CBC criticizing the Government for this? Oh yeah, they're incapable of criticizing their girlfriend, Justine.
Author: Vizilkreebest settle that strike then!
Author: MezishakarFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU GET BACK TO WORK!!
Author: MalagorTime for the Feds to step in and order back to work!!
Author: TauktilarSo don't expect any amazon shipments?
Author: ArashirgEmployees 50,000 +
Author: MaurnI ordered a christmas present from the states two days ago which isn't meant to ship for another week... does this mean it's not coming anymore? Even if it's supposed to be coming from UPS?
Author: GojinnHELLLOOOOO, PUBLIC !!!
Author: DaleGood job Canada post... Keep digging your graves, you entitled pricks.
Author: KelkreeMy USA shipment came in today.
Author: VuhnWhich will bring PROFIT even higher.
Author: FenrilabarOmg I just ordered from the uk 😩
Author: Malkreeok ill just pay extra for ups i guess
Author: ToranThis is just staging a situation so they can justify closing Canada Post and privatizing. There will be no lessening of expenses however, all Canadians will be forced for pay for all mail on top. This is how they like to extort money. Plus then mail is handled by private companies and we know how much they keep the interests of people/customers first. That was a joke in case any one missed it.
Author: Jujinnright before the christmas season..nice
Author: VujinnThe strike had no reason for the delays eh🤔 blaming cyber mon and Black Friday lmfao it’s no surprise people have been purchasing online for years. Xpresspost is a joke I have never received in 2-3 delivery days which they guarantee🙄Canada post also release a statement admitting employees are purposely not sending packages through lol mad they didn’t get what they want lol fire rehire. Over paid whiny peeps. 😳
Author: BashakarTheir last negotiations, end with no raise and being mandated back to work. They deserve a raise just as much as almost all industries in Canada. Wages and average earnings have not been following inflation and cost of living. This company and the mail industry are all living wage jobs, which support families and communities. This is an important part of our society.
Author: ArarrInstead your problem and stock it in a storage facility in Canada
Author: KaziramarThis is BS, they lost my package once and never deliver on time, when they do decide to deliver it just goes to the post office to be picked up. This is a shame for Canadians.
Author: AkilarThis is ridiculous. Just hire more people.
Author: TorgI think he was.
Author: TerisarWhy can't canadian postal workers get paid?
Author: KazijindThe post office in Canada and their deliverie drivers are the worstThe delivery guy that comes to my building just gives the parcels to anyone .I have complained to the post office for the last 8 years that i have been living in here post office DOES NOT CARE.People should start dealing with some one else.Someone who cares aboutt their job as well as their custumers .I worked in a post office a few years back its a joke (a bad one) what people in there did with mail and parcels.Crates of wine were damaged bottles taken and case disposed in garbage.And don't ever send cash in christmas cards .I stoped using Canada Post years ago .Who needs thieves and bad service. Also a delivery guy for the post office used to leave in my building 5 days a week that guy would bring 6 to 8 boxes home.I used to think that they had a lot of money to buy so much stuff.Well i don't know what happened i haven't seen the driver for over a year, since 3 police cars came to his place.I wonder was he.........
Author: ZulugalGet a Us post office box.
Author: Najarthe mail must be delivered contact postmaster general and complain that corperate mail service is failing in its duties and sue them
Author: DougoreAnd "With all the other shippers out there. We don't need a public post office." So why should anyone care about a strike? Why does the media keep saying we are GREEDY, when the most important issues we are fighting for are Safe working conditions, an 8 hour day and pay equity. The last PAY EQUITY was a mutually agreed upon arbitration. If you lost in arbitration you would respect the ruling. Does the post office think they are above the courts?
Author: MezijinPeople have no concept of understanding in reality they are trying to help your guys get all the other packages first that have been backed up before and then they will make there worker extra over time over what they already doing to get your packages but do you people realize all those packages that come from those country that they said have to go thru a screening of cbsa as well before so they contribute to holding the packages and being late
Author: ZutaurWhat's the natural disaster here that's stopping our mail 3:11 in interview?
Author: BramiProblem solved.
Author: MezigorTime to fire all of these overpaid, unionized, government workers! Unionized public employees go against the common good! That is payed by taxpayers!
Author: GoltijinnThank heavens. That means my dad won't be getting any more scam letters from Australia!
Author: VolmaranCanada post workers are up there in wages and benefits compare to the world, that’s why it’s so expensive to ship..
Author: TajarThat’s one thing that should never have an issue. The mail. Do you know how many important items people need? Paychecks, paperwork, titles, insurance forms, tickets, medical supplies. Smh. They should hire people immediately.
Author: ArazuruThe gov needs to step in and create its own postal system. Bcus CP employées are overpaid, overpriced and always on strike. We need something that works for us..
Author: TakI haven't used Cpc shit services in years , and I couldn't be happier.
Author: MugarHODOR in mail service.
Author: ZujasIt’s been a month since I haven’t gotten my parcel:(
Author: VijasSwitched all my bills to electronic and will never use Canada post again.
Author: NilabarBasically Canada post has become lazy or it has earned to much revenue.
Author: MalashakarCanada Post: We sink, you sink!
Author: KagazilkreeWhen there is no strike ,they don't do their job any way we need UPS.. or some Other company to come in and help us !!!!;
Author: VudoranThe union must be full of low-lives. Who else would hold every Canadian for ransom like that? Who would plan a postal strike right at the busiest time of the year? The union wanted to piss Canada off, well they did a good job! Yea they knew it would screw us all over, that's why they picked now for the strike.
Author: FenrisarThat's what happens when the people accept and allow a monopoly by the state or the corporate sector to take control an aspect that influences the economy directly or indirectly and is part of the economy or outside of the economy. it is an enormous moral hazard and has been the source of all misery on the planet in fact this is how we determine the misery index around the world. It is formulated by taking the unemployment rate and the rate of inflation and factoring it together to come up with the misery index these two components are created and exacerbated by government in collusion with monopolists for the benefit of a few at the expense of the majority. If we are to evolve as a global Society into the future without sustaining a considerable societal collapse scenario then we ought to move as quickly as possible to wards a true free market for the poor and the middle class. It is intellectually dishonest to suggest that we have a free market today that is completely false we have monopolies. If we are to avoid a societal collapse we will need to initiate economic freedoms and a sound monetary system from which to sustain Society. We can resolve the matter of misery while addressing the deteriorating of sound mind, self-worth and maturity as well as love, empathy and forgiveness. Anything other than economic freedom built on sound money principles will continue to Foster parasitic relationships amongst people in our society, after all in order to maintain a monopoly there must be the element of violence, the threat of violence, coercion manipulation and aggression. We then see for obvious reasons that the human spirit will continue to sustained injuries and damages well into Future Generations as it has for over 2000 years as a result of maintaining these monopolies over the people and the economy. Thank you for reading I hope you learned something new please give me a thumbs down or thumbs up so that I know this comment was not removed. Thank you
Author: VogamiI keep hearing "well I use the internet. I don't need you."
Author: NekazahnStill waiting havnt gotten mail in a month
Author: KajijoraUK is an island compared to Canada.
Author: VoodoojasWhy Canada post workers strike every year???
Author: DoranOmg... Honestly this is getting ridiculous. Canada post will topple themselves out, and mail is slowly getting away from the need for daily mail delivery from people. Companies that deliver like Amazon prime, purolator, and FedEx will take over if canada post doesnt want to do their jobs. I am sorry that they feel cheated, but unfortunately a mail delivery job will be phased out soon due to the world moving forward...
Author: MaushakarFYI you can ask Amazon and other sites to not use Canada post as well. I find I get my stuff quickly if I opt out of using Canada post anyway. This strike hasn’t affected me much because of that.
Author: GodalJust fire them and let the rest of us have their jobs since they don't seem to need them.
Author: VoodooleWho is delivering mail when outside is -10,-20 or -35 we all forget that.
Author: TuraThis post doesn't care about packages. They deliver to the wrong addresses and do not take their "service tickets" seriously. MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE - UPS or Purolator
Author: Godalcanada post employees are lazy bum
Author: VolrajasI think people are a bit missed informed. Canada Post is a Crown Corporation created by the government to oversea mail delivery in Canada; it is not run nor paid for by our tax dollars, they are entirely self sufficient. The government just has majority share in the company and collects dividend payments from it; the government just has to do annual audits, extensive reviews every decade and has the ability to select the board and CEO, since they are the majority share holder. The only down side to this is that it is the only sole entity approved by the government in distributing Canadian mails; if they where to collapse most likely the government will have to bail them out or buy them outright. In this case since they are the only company legally allowed to handle Canadian mail, when the Union went on strike for higher pay, job security and equal pay, they basically used our mail as leverage since they know no one else can touch our mail, due to it being a monopoly.
Author: FenrilarCanada Post = Post Master General = Bank of International Settlements = Bank of Canada . Canada is not functioning anymore . Next is Bank of Canada ?
Author: BazilIf only someone wanted to come to the table.
Author: ZujasGive the job to non-unionized civilians already!
Author: KajigamiAlright. Time to invest in Amazon
Author: KilkreeI talked to a striking CPWU the other day...I do not support the union...almost want to call the workers spoiled brats. Hoping the Feds mandate these "burdened" (for having a very good job) workers get to their jobs!
Author: GubeiJust here waiting for the Federal Gov't to put through new Back To Work legislation
Author: KagakazahnHow do you mess up delivering mail? Must be all those marijuana orders haha
Author: FezahnAny Canadian girl 🍆🍑?
Author: DogisIt must be prohibited for government services to strike. They terrorise regular customers.
Author: VibarCanada Post is disgruntled and pathetic, how dare they do this at around the holidays? Horrible horrible decision. Thank goodness Amazon uses private carriers, FedEx/UPS.
Author: GrokasaSorry but Canada post never deliver my parcel to my door anyway. Always send the parcel right to the post office even said there is no one at home, while I saw them just drove by! They don’t do their job right!
Author: MilmaranWoooww Canada Post needs to fix up.
Author: FenrilmaranI feel like I’ve been betrayed
Author: TygorgWhat a joke.
Author: TashakarWhere's the government intervention? Privatize mail delivery, problem solved!
Author: VoodoocageSounds like a good reason to travel and go see your loved ones in person this year.
Author: JoJocageCanada Post is profitable corporation with 200 + millions per year.. Hellooooo!!
Author: ZulkirEdit because they are checking for drugs and stuff that not aloud to be shipped to Canada so consider that
Author: TaurgCall for a national referendum to privatize Canada Post.
Author: GohnI ordered too much online, I'm getting rocked
Author: YozshumiParty pushers behind this strike are: ups, fedex. They just want to increase their market share in Canada. Cupw is traitor.
Author: VoodoolkisCANADA POST employee's do not have SEVERANCE PAY!!! Letter carriers are forced overtime 9,10,12h.
Author: ArashimiThe government will force them back to work or fire them, just wait it out people.
Author: MumIts simple GET RID OF CANADA POST
Author: YoshakarJob security!?
Author: Teramarfax your holiday cards to Canada
Author: BagalCanada Post is self sustainable corparation not being funded by your "tax paying dollars" or Ottawa's budget!
Author: DihnI'm normally one to defend public services but if things are getting this bad, it really is time to consider getting rid of this service entirely.
Author: ShaktirSure Union just shows that they are important or shows they need to be replaced.
Author: NazahnSummer are bit better +40 and humid!
Author: TuktilarJeff Bezos is going to drop the amazon drones and fire all of them any ways
Author: VijinnCanada has extreme weather conditions.
Author: VoodoonosNo doubt in my mind some postal worker knew what was in the box and stole it. Some would say "ahh why would they risk there job"
Author: KigadalFire the strikers and hire people willing to work. Extortionists, nothing more.
Author: Shaktiktilari can mail a letter for 50 cents from NYC to Guam....half way around the world but from Buffalo to Toronto it's 1.39 .....the US only charges 50 cents, the rest is all Canada Post. That's insane.
Author: FaeranCanada post FEDERAL employees lost their bonuses, sick days that they had before and pay is NOT following inflation rate!!! Volume of parcels are booming in Canada Post, we all shop online.
Author: MokoraCanada post needs a big reform. It's inefficient, unreliable and too expensive.
Author: ShashuraVery annoying. I'm a business owner who relies on shipments of materials coming in. Christmas presents don't matter to me, but when the strikes start messing up my business it pisses me off. I'm pretty sure they were on strike last year too.
Author: VigamiGuess there's no need to panic about getting cards out this year. Oh well ... really, falls under the heading of "First World Problems". Shame that those who are paid really quite well still think it's not enough. Maybe they'd like to spend a week in my shoes.
Author: FenridalIf only there was an electronic way to send mail.
Author: JoJomiJust fire all employee and hire new ones. There are tons of people who would work for less
Author: TenrisI swear Canada Post strikes every year. 'oh , it's strike season again'
Author: KigaktilarPathetic and massively embarrassing moment for Canada Post. So incompetent that they resort to using a policy designed for natural disasters just because they are too inefficient, incompetent, and entitled to do their f-ing jobs.
Author: Nimuro(Excludes big city's)
Author: TutaurStarting rate is 19 dollar per hour.
Author: MautaurRead about this a few months ago, but supposedly in Japan bus drivers went on strike- they continued operations and made their schedules, but just didn't take fares. Now, I know a lot of people pay online or what have you for shipping, but this would probably be a more efficient way of 'striking' where consumers don't get affected by the delays, but still let the workers drive a point to their superiors by not taking in any profits. I don't know how CP handles their payments so take this wtih a grain of salt.
Author: VocageThe US is willing to send you their refugees to start a new postal service.
Author: Zulkikorashame on all the postal workers today, you planned for this and make the rest of us suffer for you greedyness, you complained about having to work 12 hrs in a day when people like my husband for one don't get your kind of benefits and has to work 18 to 20 hrs a day just to get the things you are complaining about having to deliver, well boo hoo! Suck it up and be thankful you have a job with benefits just think you could be living in the U S or Mexico 👎🏼
Author: Fautthe union is only asking for a 20 per cent raise, thats pretty reasonable, in line with what the teachers usually ask for each year.
Author: ShaktikasaI had to argue with my postman to take a letter back labeled return to sender that was a proportional representation ballot and he dropped it 3 houses down after finally reluctantly taking it
Author: ShakarnJust end the strike already!! I haven't got any mail yet
Author: ArashilabarFire everyone at Can’t Post and hire people who actually need and want to work.
Author: MiranUse greyhound parcel service, we're open all year round
Author: VudogisHow selfish of Canada Post to basically CANCEL Christmas because they dont want to see progress and fairness in their treatment of their employees. Edit/Add: Canada Post Had about a year to negotiate this BEFORE the oct 22 strike started.
Author: DinosHow desperate are their benefactors?
Author: Tojazilkree🎶You're a mean one Mr. Grinch (Canada Post) 🎶
Author: NihnCanada Post isn't the problem here... it's the postal workers union causing all the problems. I think all us Canadians should get together and file a lawsuit against them for disrupting our quality of life. After all, that's a major factor in other lawsuits. I think we need to send the message we're tired of suffering for their selfish, greedy desires. I would love to work for their pay and hours.
Author: GusidaThey get paid 35 dollors hour and get a pention ... they have nothing to cry about
Author: TulkisHow is it we pay so much for shipping with them and they cannot afford to keep people working.
Author: TutilarDeliveries all over country. DHL,Fedex etc use Canada Post to deliver for them !!!
Author: KazrahnRain, snow, hot or cold every day letters and packages must be delivered.
Author: MosarThey're trying to take our countries mail hostage until we give into their demands. We should fire every single person who strikes. If they don't want to do the job we'll find someone who does.
Author: DouzragoreWhat they are doing is akin to terrorism - a group of people knowingly hurting a very large group of other people. Sickening. They should all be terminated. There's plenty of Canadians that would happily take their jobs for half the pay.
Author: SataxeWhile I respect the workers right to protest, but at the same time their timing around the Christmas and Black Friday sales season is regrettable.
Author: SaleCanada post workers are lazy!
Author: AkitaurThey should all be fired
Author: Kilmaranmake canada post private, let the market decide how much the workers should be compensated for their work
Author: KazrakreeCanada needs to just make a second postal service, give Canada post some competition, this is getting ridiculous.
Author: FaejinBetween our Dollar, GM lay offs, and CP strikes theres none much left of Canada's economy...search up Hidden Secrets of Money... wake up
Author: JoJoraChristmas is always the enemy of Canada Post.
Author: ArashijinnCanada post - is a national disaster itself.
Author: TozilNever use Canada post again.
Author: ShabarAlready took three weeks to get my parcel from China to Mississauga. Still waiting.
Author: VokusMy wish purchases. :(
Author: VosidaAfter all this is over with it will cost what $4 to ship a letter and $15 shipping on a package within Canada will go past $30?
Author: MoshoLet me guess, my mail orders are going to remain delayed due to a labour disruption. Get it together Canada Post. This is embarrassing..
Author: VoodoomYou put that also 1st quarter of Medicinal Marijuana and a strike Get It
Author: DoujoraOnly Max can save Canada!
Author: NigamiI get my mail delivered 6 days a week in the California Sierras ... post office even delivers packages on Sundays.
Author: Mishicageprivatized canada post
Author: DouzilkreeI'm guessing that the crap I bought on ebay will be delayed
Author: MooguhnReally glad to hear this now that I have a temperature sensitive package on way...
Author: KelrajasThey say they have a high injury rate due walking/carrying too much but yet refuse to implement the super mail boxes. These guys already get paid 55-75grand a year(with OT) to do what a paper boy does for Christmas tips. Oh yea and full pension and health benefits. Somebody needs to give the union a head shake. They should privatize it.
Author: MazulrajasIf my package is lost for good may god have mercy on the post office, we trust them with our packages, they lose them and then ask us about insurance... excuse me.. i gave you my package and you lost it.... find it or its going to be a problem.
Author: Vigarshould have upgraded , when the online shopping took off . We did it works well .We spent billions but its infrastructure you need it .Things will only grow better get used to it . plan for the expansion dont stop the mail , man thats backward af . Or its a cover for some bombs or toxins and they dont want people to panic .
Author: MijoraThey should just fire anyone who has a problem with their pay or benefits or work conditions an d hire new ones because they did agree to all that when they signed the contract to work. Pathetic. Greedy people not satisfied with anything...
Author: NijinnSAVE CANADA POST
Author: GroraI keep hearing from these EXPERT'S that we don't need a public post office.
Author: FezilkreeIs the Government going to pay overtime to empty those "Full" yards, in time for Great-Grandmother to get her Christmas cards?
Author: BarrAnd to hell with online shopping: make presents this Christmas.
Author: Shatnot the first time they go on strike. is either they are ill-treated or they are lazy. none of the reasons reflect well on canadians. for a national service like this just unacceptable
Author: TozilWow that woman sure was good at saying absolutely nothing with a lot of words
Author: DugrelArrogant pricks.
Author: GobeiOthers know that they could get away with it too easily. No disclipine
Author: MezizilI agree woman pay should be the same, but you dog this grave. You should have bought a big enough shovel to dig yourself back out after.
Author: NikobarThe mail should be an essential service and employees not be able to strike.
Author: NegarHow embarassing lol
Author: DaihnIt's going to take a year to receive your Aliexpress orders now smh, It already takes like 3 months to get your item.
Author: DaigulOK.....this is when our girly man prime minister needs to grow a real mans set, and take a leaf from his old mans book. If the postal union works to rule...or asks foreigners like those f—king limeys to work to rule....then use that as an excuse to fire the whole bunch. Then hire real Canadians who want to work to deliver the mail....BUT no f—king more union!!!! BUT Trudeau needs to say when the union asks will he really fire them all for not doing their jobs.....in a real mans voice “just watch me?”.....but again he needs to hire a stand in...he is so femme..I don’t think he can pull it off and be creditable.
Author: FauhnNow it takes 3 weeks to ship something across the GTA!
Author: Shaktilarshame on canada post..
Author: TashuraNow I know why my stuff hasn't arrived yet.
