Due to the expectation by Canada Post officials that the strike by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers will last until at least sometime next week, the U.S. Postal Service will suspend accepting mail destined to Canada — effective Saturday, June 18, 2011, 11:59 p.m. CDT…
“As a convenience to our customers and to minimize service disruptions, we arranged to accept mail destined for Canada as long as possible,” said Giselle Valera, vice president, Global Business. “We will continue to closely monitor the strike situation, and once Canada Post resumes operations, the U.S. Postal Service will again begin accepting mail for Canada. We also will then resume processing any Canadian-destined mail currently held in our network.”

Yeah, it really is a bummer. I was downtown here in Trois-Rivieres (Quebec) this morning, and postal workers were all over the place by the post office. They are focused getting health and safety concerns, sick leave, different wages, and different pensions, apparently, so I hope they can get a sweet agreement and get back to work.
