Canada Post workers to go on strike in 6-12 business days

OTTAWA (The News Desk) — With negotiations between Canada Post and its employees stalling, the union is warning customers it may go on strike within 6-12 business days if its demands aren’t met.

“We might walk out at any time between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm Monday through Friday except on holidays,” union representative Geoff Hollister threatened.

“You can count on that,” he said, adding that customers may not be able to count on that if they live in a suburban or rural area.

Management has expressed frustration that the union isn’t being clear in its demands, claiming it can’t figure out what will get the stamp of approval, or exactly how many stamps of approval are required – or whether stamps of approval from 2011 are still considered valid.

Meanwhile, Canadians living in the year 2001 expressed fears that their lives could be significantly impacted by a strike.

“How will I correspond with my parents?” asked one man from 2001. “I also have bills to pay, and I don’t even want to think about how my phone book will be delivered.” ♦
