Canada Post workers in Hamilton, La Mauricie, join rotating strikes

The Nov. 1 walkout comes a day before the mediation process is scheduled to end.

"There have been people who have been hurt or off on cancer treatment, we also have people on maternity leave that are cut off from their top-up benefits, which is something our union wanted to be topped-up in the first place", Rasmussen said.

The federal government appointed a special mediator to assist the corporation and the union to negotiate a new deal.

Postal workers in St. John's have walked off the job, joining the series of rotating strikes happening across the country.

One of the expired collective agreements let Canada Post give mandatory overtime to some postal workers, which included letter carriers.

He says safety is a key issue for their members, but so too is service expansion. "We are the most injured workers in the federal sector, twice as high as the second most injured workers and that I believe are long shore workers".

"That's why we had to dig in and continue to do this (rotating strikes)", said Langley.

He said with the parcel business, growing "year over year", carriers are forced, said Langley, to work 12-hour days to complete their routes.

The labour action by local members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is expected to last only the one day and regular postal service is expected to return on Monday.

In response to these situations, the union called a national overtime ban starting Thursday at midnight.

Rasmussen believes this confirms it is decision time for Canada Post.

According to Canada Post, 10 days of job action across the country have caused days-long mail backlogs as 150 trucks full of parcels and packages are sitting untouched in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.
