After nearly a month of disagreement and affected services, Canada Post is beginning the process of getting their mail services back up and running.
At approximately 8:45 p.m. ET on Sunday, the Canadian government passed back-to-work legislation, forcing Canada Post employees back to their jobs.
Nearly 48,000 workers were locked out of their jobs on June 14 after 12 days of rotating strikes in various major city centres across Canada.
The Hay River branch closed its doors on June 14, and was expected to open again on Tuesday.
On a statement posted on the Canada Post website, the company stated that they would be restarting mail services on Tuesday, and that all mailboxes would be unsealed on Monday.
“We regret the impact of the work disruption on our customers,” the statement read.
“We will move as quickly as possible to process and deliver the mail.”
“We thank Canadians for the patience they have shown throughout this labour disruption and are asking for continued patience as we restore our network to normal delivery standards.”
A Canada Post spokesperson was unavailable for comment as of The Hub’s press time.
