Calgary & Edmonton

On Saturday June 4, 2011 some members of the Scarborough Local travelled to the Hamilton Mail Processing Plant and picketed over night with postal workers from other areas of the Ontario Region. I must thank the dedication of these members to travel on their days off to show Canada Post that we will fight to maintain what we have and also share in the benefits (sic) of Modern Post / Postal Transformation.

Most preparation is done; we are able if called upon. The longer the rotating strikes continue, the greater the chance it will become a nation wide shut down, one way or the other. The mail is drying up, but will rebound when there is a tentative agreement in place.

Below is the text from the June 7, 2011 notice on Calgary & Edmonton Alberta.

In Solidarity
