Rotating Canada Post strikes today in Calgary, Sherbrooke and Kelowna

Rotating Canada Post strikes today in Calgary, Sherbrooke and Kelowna

OTTAWA - Canada Post employees will continue rotating walkouts today in Sherbrooke, Que., Calgary and Kelowna, B.C., but the strike has ended in the Greater Toronto Area after two days of work stoppage forced the closure of the Crown corporation's biggest sorting plants.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers announced early Thursday that the Quebec city was latest location for the strike, with workers walking off the job at 4 a.m. local time.

CUPW says the Calgary walkout began Wednesday at 6 p.m. MT and in Kelowna at 6 a.m. PT.

Nearly 9,000 CUPW members walked off the job in the Toronto region early Tuesday as part of rotating strikes that began Monday to back contract demands.

The job action at the giant Gateway parcel facility in Mississauga, Ont., which processes roughly two-thirds of all parcels mailed in Canada, and the South Central mail plant in the Toronto's east end, forced delays in shipments of tens of thousands of letters and parcels across the country.

Labour Minister Patty Hajdu has appointed special mediator Morton Mitchnick, a former chair of the Ontario Labour Relations Board, to help the two parties resolve their contract differences.
