Canadian Shipping & Canada Post Update

Dear Valued Clients,

We have been closely monitoring the ups and downs of the potential labour dispute between Canada Post and its major union (CUPW).  It has been reported that CUPW has not issued a notice of strike at any point during the negotiations which is a very positive sign.  We can also confirm that Canada Post withdrew its threat of a lock-out at 12:01 am EST, Monday July, 11.  Both parties are back at the bargaining table, with the assistance of the Minister of Labour for Canada, and it has been publicly reported that  “Progress is being made.”

Taking all of this into account, we believe that the threat of a potential labour disruption is quite low.  Because of this, as well as listening to feedback from our clients, we will resume using Canada Post for our Canadian shipping.  Effective Wednesday, July 13th, 2016, Chit Chats  will be accepting packages via Canada Post and regular services and rates will apply.  As of tomorrow, there will be no need to complete the online ‘ship Canada’ form.  Please visit our website for more details on Canadian shipping.

Rest assured that we will continue to assess the situation with Canada Post and CUPW.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support.

Your Chit Chats Team
