The strike is over in Kapuskasing.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers called upon Kapuskasing Canada Post employees to take up a 24-hour work stoppage beginning at 7:00am Tuesday and working itself until 7:00am this morning as part of rotating work stoppages across the country.

CUPW Local President Christine Lozier says the reason for striking is that employees don’t wish to see anymore rollback, and as mentioned prior in this contract they want to see health and safety issues addressed, as well as any precarious work.

CUPW National President Mike Palecek, Canada Post Interim President Jessica McDonald and members of their negotiating teams are meeting in Ottawa currently through a mediator who has been selected by the government.

As of now, postal service has gone back to its regular schedule of deliveries in Kapuskasing.
