Canada Post workers strike�mail delivery not affected (yet)

About 2,100 support and technical workers at Canada Post took to the picket lines this morning, according to a story by The Canadian Press. A Canada Post statement, issued Sunday, said mail delivery would not be affected.

However, union president Richard Desaulniers, who was picketing at Canada Post headquarters in Ottawa, said he expected delivery to eventually be affected by the strike.
"We are planning to slow down the mail delivery and put pressure on the employers to return to the table with a decent offer to end this quickly."

The key issues of contention are disability and family-leave benefits.
