I feel ya.

Can’t believe this strike is happening!

I’ve been waiting for my tax return of almost $2000. And apparently it “got lost in the mail”… aint that some shit?

So I had to wait 2 weeks for a form from them in the mail to sign saying I never recieved it and then send it back in the mail. But now the mail isnt working!

So now not only can I not get my form back to them, but I can also not get my check.

GRRRRRR

My invitations have recently been ordered…. I have no idea when they’ll come. They have to go out at the end of next month, so hopefully they won’t take too long. ๐Ÿ™

 I have clutches I’m looking at from Etsy, waiting to get fabric swatches from the girl, again, no idea when I’ll get those…

Ugh. It’s a little depressing.

I can’t believe a judge hasn’t stopped this strike yet. It’s absolutely ridiculous that something as important as the mail can go on hold so that a bunch of people who already make too much money at their cozy government jobs can strike for even more money, vacation days and various other benefits they already have too much of.

@DeathByDesign: I agree with you completely… It really is ridiculous!

To those who are going to criticize the postal workers who are on strike, the least you could do is be accurate about what they are striking for.

They are NOT striking for more money for themselves. They are striking to protest management’s plan to ROLL BACK starting wages and benefits. That means they are striking for US_ mostly young people- who would be affected by this plan.

Those people out on the picket line are losing money to try to maintain a decent living wage for young people who will work at the Post Office in the future.

They have a particularly hard job running an effective job action because there are so many alternatives to the mail these days.

We are lucky to live in countries where people are allowed to withdraw their services and go on strike, instead of being born in countries where they still have horrendous working conditions.

When Unions negotiate better benefits for their members there is a trickle down effect, and those of you who are not Union members will eventually get improvement in your benefits also.

Keep in mind that it is management who issues lockout notice not the employees!

This move is designed to get the government to legislate them back to work, instead of the Employer having to negotiate a settlement with their employees.

I just finished hand making all my invites and was supposed to send them out this week, now I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get them out. Plus my bridesmaids’ gifts were sent out Monday and are now in Canada Post limbo. I seriously hope Canada Post knows what they are doing with this lockout.

I sent out my invitations mid-last week. I’ve been notified that some have arrived, but I imagine some distant (non-Ontario) ones have been stuck in transit Yell I hope back-to-work legislation is enacted soon!
