This if off the website.
The strike will begin at 11:59 p.m. EDT in Winnipeg (10:59 p.m. CDT). The Winnipeg local will be on strike for 24 hours, after which the strike will continue in other locations to be announced later.
The purpose of this strike activity is to encourage Canada Post Corporation to abandon their proposals for significant concessions and instead negotiate solutions to the very real problems that are being experienced by 48,000 postal workers.
Winnipeg has been chosen as the location for the first strike activity because it was the first city to be impacted by Canada Post’s modernization program. The results have been a sharp deterioration of service to the public as well as a host of health and safety problems experienced by postal workers due to the new work methods and equipment.

I’m going nuts over this strike, I had planned to mail my invites today…
I’m stuck as to what to to, I don’t want my invites to get lost, so I guess I’ll just hold on to them for now . Crap.

I mailed some last minute ones out Monday, and i’m sure they got there….so i wouldn’t worry.
It does suck they’re going on strike, it sucks LARGE. Here’s hoping it doesn’t last long!!

I sent mine out on Sunday and as of this morning, Canada Post is in full lock-out mode! No one has received mine yet which means they are officially stuck somewhere in limbo! The only consolation: my wedding is only September 17th so hopefully it will be resolved in the next few weeks and they will still arrive within a reasonable amount of time.
