Canada Post strikes continue in 5 southern Ontario communities

In addition to Brantford, job action was taken by Canadian Union of Postal Workers in Simcoe, Toronto's east end, London, Barrie, Fort Erie, Guelph, St. Catharines and Welland.

The rotating strikes at Canada Post have hit three more Niagara municipalities and is affecting delivery across the region.

Local 710's Secretary Treasurer Wycliffe Oduor said it's not clear how long the most recent action, that began at 8 a.m., will last in Calgary.

He said there was limited service at smaller local offices, including those in Burford, St. George, Princeton and Ohsweken.

"We need Canada Post to get back to the tables".

Canada Post's massive processing centre in Mississauga has been shut down for the second time in the past three weeks, as rotating strikes from the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) continue across Canada.

The union has said the current strike could last a long time.

In recent years, said Hamilton, the corporation's parcel deliveries have seen double-digit yearly increases. Those plants can process a million parcels and packets a day.

In its latest update, Canada Post says it 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".

There are also concerns, said Cuda, about workers on rural routes whose pay can be "drastically different" than those working in urban areas.

"Until we get confirmation from the national executive, we don't know when it will end", said Oduor, who noted the last action on October 24-25 ended after one day.

The union and the postal service have been unable to reach new collective agreements for two bargaining units after 10 months of negotiations. "The overburdening, the overtime, constantly not being paid properly, it's definitely worth us being out here doing what we're doing", says one picketing postal worker.

Correction: An earlier version of this story included Napanee Ont.in the list of eastern Ontario municipalities with postal workers on strike on November 7.
