Canadians have flooded their members of Parliament with messages in support of postal banking after Canada's six biggest banks reported a combined profit of $10.4 billion last week.
Postal workers have twice agreed to postpone job action for 24 hours. As negotiations continue both Canada Post management and workers have agreed to continue negotiations until Wednesday August 31.
CUPW workers' strike vote is valid up to August 25. Will Canada Post lock workers out, extend negotiations and therefore the strike vote's validity, or will the union serve a 72-hour strike notice?
CUPW will deliver over 10,000 postcards protesting the failure of Lisa Raitt to consult with the public on a postal charter review and the sweeping changes announced by Canada Post.
