CUP-W Protesting Postal Changes

Nearly 50 municipalities across the country are rallying behind Canada Post amid drastic cuts planned within the Crown corportation.

Communities from Victoria, British Columbia to St. Johns Newfoundland are worried about the planned reductions in door to door mail delivery.

Municipalities have passed resolutions urging the federal government to reconder their decision to introduce more community mailboxes - instead of home delivery of mail.

Canadian Union of Postal Workers spokesperson Jeff Callaghan says they are urging people concerned about the changes to contact their MP.

Callaghan says they want to see Ottawa consult with communities before making sweeping changes to mail deliver in Canada.
