Cornwall - Jun. 9, 2011 - Due to a significant drop in mail volume Canada Post announced yesterday that it will make adjustments to staffing and delivery schedules in an effort to reduce costs.

With rotating strikes continuing, Canada Post says it “ must act now to avoid significant losses that will harm the company’s financial self-sustainability.”

In the coming days, Canada Post will implement the following measures:

  • Staffing levels at mail processing plants across the country will be reduced to adjust to the reduction in mail volumes at each facility.

  • Letters and Admail will be delivered three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) in mostly urban areas where delivery is performed by letter carriers.

  • Most small packages and documents will also be delivered three days a week. Every effort will be made to continue to deliver priority items five days a week.

    These changes do not include all products and services at Canada Post. Many product and service offerings will not be affected by these changes, including:

  • Delivery of mail to rural mailboxes and community mailboxes will continue five days a week where service is provided by Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMCs) who operate under a separate collective agreement than urban employees.

  • Post Office operating hours and access to post office boxes will remain unchanged.

  • Pick-ups from qualified customers and mail collection at street letter boxes on major streets will continue as usual.

  • Delivery of all parcels will continue as usual.

    Daily mail volumes at Canada Post have fallen up to 50 per cent since the union started rotating strikes on June 3rd. Cornwall and area has yet to be targetted with the rotating postal strikes.
