Hundreds of Regina postal workers hit the picket lines Thursday, as rotating strikes hit the city and that continued Friday.
“I think it’s just a sign that our members are frustrated and we just want them to get to the table and negotiate a collective bargaining agreement,” said William Johnson, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers Regina local spokesman.
These strikes have occurred in over 50 communities across Canada, as members of the union are looking for increased and equal pay, stronger benefits and better job security.
While most of them lasting one day, Johnson noted their strike will go for two.
According to Johnson, though it will be delayed a bit, Regina residents can expect to start seeing their mail be delivered on Monday.
“We do have some inside the plant mail, it will resume flowing through.”
