Our 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?

Their strike is not effecting me at all. Let them strike all through winter in -40c weather. I will get some entertainment out of it.

Canada is not a developed country. Dont even have proper mail service.

Wow 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.

Canada 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 .

I totally get why they want to strike but before Christmas is just rediculous. They did it last year as well.

Canada 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: Dinris
I 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.

The timing of this strike is intentionally picked for added pressure. Nobody cares about customers. Maybe it's time to end the monopoly?

This 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: Jujinn
right before the christmas season..nice
Author: Vujinn
The 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: Bashakar
Their 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.

The 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.........

the mail must be delivered contact postmaster general and complain that corperate mail service is failing in its duties and sue them
Author: Dougore
And "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: Mezijin
People 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

Canada post workers are up there in wages and benefits compare to the world, that’s why it’s so expensive to ship..

That’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.

The 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.

That'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.

Why Canada post workers strike every year???
Author: Doran
Omg... 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: Maushakar
FYI 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: Godal
Just fire them and let the rest of us have their jobs since they don't seem to need them.

Who is delivering mail when outside is -10,-20 or -35 we all forget that.

canada post employees are lazy bum
Author: Volrajas
I 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.

Read 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.

Canada 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.
