The union representing thousands of Canada Post workers says it will stay at the bargaining table, avoiding a potential strike that could have started Wednesday.


The Canadian Union of Postal Workers said Monday it would not issue a 72-hour notice of job action, giving the Crown agency’s negotiators an opportunity to address the union’s demands, which include better wages and working conditions.

Both sides have been bargaining for separate collective agreements over the past nine months.

While the two sides continue talking, the union warns its members may still face a work stoppage if bargaining is unsuccessful.

A spokeswoman for Canada Post said Monday that both sides were working hard to reach negotiated agreements.
