Canada Post Strikes

cc_update-green Status: Resolved

Published: October 16, 2018 / Updated: December 10, 2018

[Updated 12/10/18]

Canada Post continues its work to stabilize operations and manage significant backlogs across the country. Customers can expect delivery delays. The current outlook is:

  • for parcels: Incoming holiday parcel volumes continue to be down over 2017, and significantly below projections for this year. As a result, the fully-enacted holiday delivery plans, which were built to deliver the projected double-digit parcel growth from online shopping this holiday season, continue to help operations catch up. Backlogs have been reduced and are now consistent with those experienced during a typical holiday delivery period. Holiday delivery service guarantees have now been restored across the country, which means Canadians can expect normal holiday delivery timelines for parcels.
  • for International parcels inbound: International posts began to send items to Canada on November 27. The international volumes entering the country continue to be significantly less than expected. Processing lower incoming volumes, combined with the time lag for items to arrive in Canada, has helped to make progress. With reduced international volumes and a continued work in partnership with the Canadian Border Services Agency, Canada Post expects to be current on International items in early January.
  • for Lettermail: Canada Post is current on  holiday Lettermail processing and delivery and expect that to continue through Christmas.

Service guarantee

On November 13, 2018 Canada Post suspended service delivery guarantees due to the backlogs caused by ongoing strike activity. With continued strong delivery and reduced incoming parcel volumes, Canada Post has restored normal holiday delivery service guarantees across the country.

[Updated 11/28/18]

Canada Post continues its work to stabilize operations and manage significant backlogs across the country. Customers can expect delivery delays. The current outlook is:

  • for parcels: Deliveries will continue to be delayed during the peak holiday season and into January 2019. Existing backlogs are expected to worsen this week due to high volumes from Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.
  • for International parcels inbound: Right now, there are delays of up to several weeks for parcels arriving from other countries, but the delays should diminish gradually through December and into the new year. However, it may be March before normal delivery standards resume. International items will require screening by the Canada Border Services Agency.
  • for International parcels outbound: There may be a modest delay for some packages leaving Canada for other countries.
  • for Lettermail: The backlog should be cleared and deliveries current before December 25.
  • for direct marketing mail: We expect to be current before December 25, but some delays may occur and time-sensitive pieces will be delivered on a best-effort basis.

Once Canada Post receives mail or parcels from customers, it is processing and delivering on a first-in, first out basis.

Canada Post’s Pacific Processing Centre in Richmond, B.C., has been picketed today by individuals who are not members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. The picketers are not allowing trucks in or out. As a result, commercial induction of mail and pickups in that area may not occur today. Canada Post is making every effort to minimize service disruptions and resolve the situation.

***

[Updated 11/27/18]

As of noon Eastern Time on 11/27, the union is no longer in a legal strike position. Employees are expected to return to work in areas impacted by strike activity in the last 24 hours.

Canada Post is now working to stabilize operations with a manageable approach across the country.  With the network currently facing unprecedented backlogs, customers can continue to expect delivery delays for the next several weeks.

Hundreds of trailers are currently waiting to be unloaded in the yards of Canada Post, securely stored locations off-site, on the roads, or staged at commercial customers’ locations. In addition, many delivery depots are at capacity and temporarily unable to receive more items from processing plants. There is also a shortage of equipment, such as containers, available for commercial customers.

Last-ditch efforts to resume full operations exhausted, Canada Post advises customers of prolonged delivery delays for the foreseeable future

With all efforts exhausted to restore operations while the labour dispute continues, Canada Post is advising commercial customers and Canadians that mail and parcels in or entering its network will have long and unpredictable delays before being delivered.

This is likely to be the situation for the foreseeable future, meaning the next several weeks, including the peak holiday season and through January 2019.

The postal service remains operational, but it is not able to honour its delivery standards for any product because of prolonged and ongoing rotating strikes. The strikes have created massive backlogs of mail and parcels already in our network, just days before we expect millions more parcels from Black Friday and Cyber Monday online sales.

The extra resources that normally allow Canada Post to deliver peak volumes are all constrained because of ongoing rotating strikes and labour disruptions. Employees represented by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers are no longer working overtime or weekends and temporary employees are discouraged from working extra hours. With the backlogs, customers are running out of trailers and equipment, such as containers, because they are sitting full of parcels and mail, unable to be unloaded, rather than being emptied and made available for the next customer.

While there will be delays across the country, Canada Post expects the worst delays for mail and parcels will be for items that originate or are destined for southern and southwestern Ontario. This is because the country’s largest and busiest mail and parcels processing plants, in Toronto, have the highest volumes and have been left idle repeatedly for several days by the union’s rotating strikes. As central hubs for the entire country, they see a disproportionately large flow of items.

The backlogs also affect mail and parcels entering Canada from other countries. Currently, our facilities in Vancouver, Edmonton and Montréal are also experiencing severe backlogs.

Once Canada Post receives mail or parcels from customers, it is processing and delivering as much as possible on a first-in, first-out basis. International items will require screening by the Canada Border Services Agency and we are working in partnership with them to manage the significant existing backlog.

The best advice we can give to customers looking to mitigate these circumstances for their mailings or parcel inductions is below and will be updated often as circumstances change.

What to expect

Major induction and processing delays for all originating packages and mail coming from Southwestern Ontario (Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton-Kitchener-London, Barrie-Sudbury areas – L, M, N, P postal codes).

Major processing and delivery delays for all packages and mail destined/going to Toronto (L and M postal codes).

As early as the end of the week, Canada Post may be unable to honour pickups and induct items in the GTA due to lack of trailers and space.

Canada Post proposes last-ditch effort to deliver the holidays by introducing a cooling-off period

In a last-ditch effort to deliver the holidays, Canada Post has proposed to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) that the two parties work together through January during a cooling-off period that would immediately end rotating strikes, allow for mediation to resume and introduce a process to achieve a final resolution.

“With the rotating strikes, resulting backlogs, and the massive Black Friday and Cyber Monday volumes that will arrive within days, we are trying everything we can to work together with the union – urgently – to deliver the holidays to Canadians,” says Jessica McDonald, Chair of the Board of Directors and Interim President and CEO of Canada Post. “This proposal also includes a way for the parties to resolve their differences and these negotiations.”

If CUPW ends its strikes, the Corporation could begin to reduce the massive existing backlogs that threaten the holiday season, which is critical for countless small businesses, retailers and charities. There is an urgent need for Canada Post to restore full operations. With hundreds of trailers loaded with parcels already backlogged at its facilities – and the growing repercussions for customers and the Canadian retail economy – this proposal is open for acceptance until 5:00 p.m. on November 19. After that time, Canada Post would lose its last window of opportunity to clear the backlogs before the oncoming wave of volumes reaches its facilities.

In an effort to restore full operations and deliver oncoming volumes, Canada Post is proposing:

  • A cooling-off period, effective immediately and lasting until January 31, 2019, which is past the holiday peak volumes, as well as high volumes driven by Boxing Day sales and the return of holiday purchases in January. During the cooling-off period, CUPW would not strike or take any other job action, and the Corporation would not lock out employees;
  • Immediately starting further mediation with a jointly-agreed, government-appointed mediator until the end of the cooling-off period;
  • A special payment of up to $1,000 for CUPW-represented employees that would be paid at the end of January if there is no labour disruption before the cooling-off period ends;
  • To reinstate both collective agreements with CUPW, including all employee benefits, for the duration of the cooling-off period;
  • If agreements have not been reached by January 31, the mediator would submit recommendations for settlement. If they are not adopted by the parties, binding arbitration would be introduced.

Montreal a key processing hub

Canada Post has been working hard to maintain service to Canadians, but Montreal is a key processing hub for mail and parcels in Canada. The union’s rotating strikes will therefore have a significant impact on our operations. Canada Post will make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country will continue to see delays for parcel and mail delivery.

Canada Post tables significant, time-limited offer in negotiations with CUPW

Dear Customer,

This afternoon, Canada Post tabled a significant, time-limited offer to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers in an effort to resolve negotiations and return our operations to normal so we can deliver the holidays to Canadians, retailers, charities and other customers.

About the improved offer

The offer improves pay increases to 2 percent per year for all employees and the extraordinary measure of a signing bonus of up to $1,000 to ensure we can reach a deal and deliver the holidays. This would be on top of the approximately 25 percent pay increase from the recently announced pay equity ruling. The offer also addresses many of CUPW’s concerns around health and safety and workloads.

The urgency to resolve negotiations

The urgency created by the backlogs and rapidly oncoming holiday volumes are why this offer is time-limited. It will be open for acceptance until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, November 17, 2018.

Country Wide Mail Delays

Unfortunately, the growing impact of the union’s rotating strikes on postal operations across the country means Canada Post must suspend its service delivery guarantees until further notice.

We will continue to make best efforts to deliver, but the union’s strike efforts have caused significant backlogs and delays throughout our network. As of today, our major processing centre in Vancouver was shut down from Friday evening to Tuesday morning and Toronto is now shut down, significantly impacting our ability to process mail and parcels. In Toronto alone, more than 180 trailers full of parcels, packets and mail sit idle as the union shuts down the facility for a third time in less than a month. Striking to shut down a processing facility not only impacts our operations at that location, it chokes the flow of mail and parcels to our delivery facilities.

We apologize for the inconvenience and are advising customers to expect delays. We remain committed to serving Canadians and will continue to do everything possible to minimize the impacts of the union’s strike activities.

Update on Negotiations

Despite lengthy discussions and continued proposals by Canada Post to respond to the union’s demands through three rounds of mediation, we are still no closer to a deal.

The Corporation has made significant offers to CUPW that include increased wages, job security and improved benefits, and it has not asked for any concessions in return. We value the relationship with the union and have responded to their major demands with meaningful improvements and a commitment to continue to work together to find solutions that address the changing nature of the work and the health and safety of employees.

It’s important that we move forward together to resolve negotiations in a manner that treats employees fairly and ensures the postal service remains strong without putting an unreasonable financial burden on our customers.

Canada Post remains committed to the bargaining process. The Corporation has made significant offers to CUPW that include increased wages, job security, and improved benefits, and it has not asked for any concessions in return.

The Minister of Labour has extended the mandate of Morton Mitchnick as mediator for a period of 4 days (November 7 – 10) to assist the parties in reaching a resolution.

[Updated 11/6/18]

While negotiations continue, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have hit Canada’s largest processing center in Toronto for the second time in three weeks.

Toronto is a key processing hub for mail and parcels in Canada. It was shut down by the union for two consecutive days in October and is now idle again due to the union’s strikes with no indication of when it will end.  This will worsen the backlogs at facilities and customers should expect delays of several days for mail or parcel deliveries. Prior to the union’s decision to target Toronto again, the number of trailers full of parcels and packets waiting to be unloaded and processed at a Canada Post facilities sat at over 150.The escalating strikes have now shut down our three largest processing facilities in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal up to 48 hours. Combined, those three plants can process a million parcels and packets a day for communities across the country.Canada Post will continue to make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers across the country can expect delays of several days for parcel and mail delivery.

Delays

Canada Post is informing customers that they can expect to see delivery delays as escalating strike activity by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) continues to impact operations. Since October 22, CUPW’s rotating strikes have shut down Canada Post’s operations in over 50 cities and towns across the country. The union has ramped up their strike activity quickly, adding more communities each day and shutting down major processing centers for 48 hours.

Canada Post is working hard to minimize the service impact to Canadians, but the escalating strikes have shut down our three largest processing facilities in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal for up to 48 hours. Combined, those three plants can process a million parcels and packets a day for communities across the country. At this point, there is a backlog of over 150 trailers in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal of items waiting to be unloaded and processed, with more arriving every day. While the rotating strikes continue, Canada Post is making every effort to work through the backlog as quickly as possible, but delays will continue.

Negotiations Update

A special mediator appointed by the federal government joined the parties at an offsite location on Wednesday, October 24, and is working to help reach a negotiated settlement. Canada Post remains committed to the bargaining process. The Corporation has made significant offers to CUPW that include increased wages, job security, and improved benefits, and it has not asked for any concessions in return. Canada Post values the relationship with the union and has been able to find common ground on some issues. They remain committed to working together to address employees’ workload concerns caused by parcel growth, additional financial services and going beyond pay equity for Rural and Suburban employees by extending job security and moving to one uniform for all delivery employees.

[Published 10/16/18]

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) issued a strike notice on October 16, 2018, putting them in a legal position to strike as early as Monday, October 22, 2018.

Rotating legal strikes may be isolated to one or two specific locations at a time, affecting those areas for a period of 24 hours. In that situation, Canada Post would continue to accept, process and deliver mail and parcels in all other areas. Once the temporary disruption ends, we would return to normal operations in the affected locations.

Negotiations Background

Negotiations between Canada Post and Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began in November 2017, with mediated talks beginning in January. The collective agreement for the rural and suburban letter carriers, with about 8,000 members, expired December 31, 2017; the collective agreement for the urban postal operations unit, which has 42,000 members, expired January 31, 2018.
Strike votes were held across the country between August 7 and September 9, with 93.8 percent of urban postal operations workers and 95.9 percent of rural and suburban mail carriers voting to walk out if an agreement can’t be reached with Canada Post.
Jim Gallant, CUPW’s regional grievance officer for Atlantic Canada, said contract talks, wages, and working conditions are the major reasons for the hold up in negotiation.
