Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers have still not negotiated a new contract, so there is a possibility the CUPW will go on strike beginning July 2, 2016.
What If They DON'T Strike? Nothing happens. Business as usual. :)
What If They DO Strike? 1) Orders placed this week shipping via Canada Post may not be delivered until the strike ends (unless they are delivered before Thursday, June 30th) . 2) We will be forced to offer an alternative shipping method during the strike. However, not only is this method slower (FedEx Ground), but it is also up to 3 times the price of Canada Post. 3) Due to this increase we will no longer be able to offer free shipping for orders over $149, until the strike ends. All orders that qualify for free shipping and have free shipping selected will be held until the strike ends. 4) The regular option to ship via Canada Post will still be visible, however, using that option means we will hold your order until the strike ends. 5) In the event of a strike, we will be offering discounts on all of our products to help offset these inconveniences. More details to come.
