There will be a news conference this morning in Ottawa.  The reason?  The Canadian Union of Postal Workers will give an update on contract negotiations with Canada Post.


There’s word talks have stalled as a strike mandate for 51,000 union members is set to run out tonight.

CUP-W has until midnight to serve the Crown corporation with a 72-hour strike notice.

If the union does halt the bargaining and serve strike notice, there could be disruptions in mail delivery by as early as Monday and Canada Post also has the option to lock out workers after today.
