Canada postal service
disruption news

Canada Post and two of the postal workers' unions have been in a labour dispute for some time. Negotiations have been ongoing, however the unions today (Oct. 17) announced that they would commence rotating strikes (a different city each time for 24 hours) beginning Monday October 22. Canada Post has replied, saying that they would continue service, to expect delays and that Canada Post are committed to negotiations.

The good news is that both sides are still talking, with a government appointed mediator involved. The most recent information from Canada Post is available on this page.

We are continuing to ship until we get notice of a complete stoppage from either side. US and international orders should be out of the country quickly and not subject to any serious slowdown. Canadian orders should get through with a few days delay. There is some risk that Canadian orders could get caught in a work stoppage, but that is a risk we will have to take.

We are continuing to ship all orders until a complete mail stoppage is announced. If that happpens, we will cease shipping at that time until the dispute is resolved. If you prefer that we hold your order(s) until normal mail service resumes, please tell us in the comments section when checking out.

We have a BuckaCover upload of over 10,000 new covers all ready to go as soon there is no longer a threat of a mail strike. Let's hope for a speedy resolution!

Thank you for your understanding.
