Canadian Marketing Association calls for end to postal strikes

The Canadian Marketing Association has issued a statement calling for a quick end to the rotating strikes by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the attendant service reductions by Canada Post. "While Canada Post's volumes are dropping, the postal service still delivers 11 billion pieces of mail each year and remains relevant to the Canadian economy," said John Gustavson, president and CEO of the association. "Businesses that use the mail stream to deliver marketing communications, issue bills and receive payments as well as charities that use the mail to solicit and receive donations are being seriously impacted by the disruption in service, and they will be forced to lay off workers if the strike persists. Both Canada Post and the Union stand to lose as business will find other ways to communicate using a growing range of alternatives. The parties need to focus on the bargaining table and solve this thing quickly."
