I’m getting weary of writing about the Canadian Postal Service but it is affecting companies in the US, so we have to keep an eye on it. The Canadian Postal workers union is now doing rotating strikes, where workers strike for 24 hours at a time rotating from city to city. The problem for the postal workers is that Canadians have cut back in using the postal service and now the Crown Corporation (Canada Post) is shutting down postal services in some rural areas to 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. So its a crapshoot if your packages will get delivered. Just like the US Postal Service, Canada Post has seen a dramatic decrease in mail in the last few years because of the internet, email, texting and social sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Stay tuned, we’ll keep you updated.
