Addresses are hard..…
Maybe once they figure out how to deliver the mail we can move on to banking...

Still trying to figure that part out.

definitely yes, With billion dollars to be make. Look around, the only one against that postal banking is the big fat banks that afraid we cut their pie. Pick any bank and look at their financial reports year after years. You know it is the business that you can't lose.

Indeed. In fact, the only reason we don't still have postal banking to this day, is because of lobbying from those same banks, who wanted all the profits for themselves....
Sometimes the truth hurts. The other times it hurts worse....

I have just completed all of those LC training courses. Now I just keep working for my previous employer while waiting for the eclipse call. No call so far yet, same to most of my classmates except there two classmates are working for the special "weekend only parcel delivery" project. Is there anyone know how often we may get call in this summer? When it's going to getting better and work like a full time hours (40 hrs/week)?

By the way, the union guy talked to us that we'd better change the working area from Central and East to West because the West has more Part-time/ Full-time position to fill in. So we can get to the perm status much faster than if we allocate to work for the Central and East area. Is that true? Any advice?

I seen bunch guys from East coming to West and Mississauga to get perm stat, I dont know if West is faster, but West is about 3 month for Part time (25h/week) stat and 6 month for Full time (40hr/Week) stat atm. some one also told me that at Oakville and Barrie you can get Perm Full time in 3 month, dont know if thats true or not.

Well metro west getting ft is roughly 4 months. Oakville comes under Hamilton and it’s about 4-6 months to become ft. All in all anywhere in GTHA it takes between 4-6 months to get ft.

In other words, it takes 4~6 months to get full time even if I stay at the central area of the GTA. Correct?

I think it is more intelligent to partner with a consumer bank such as TD, and start rolling out such banks in rural areas if they are indeed valid financially speaking. Undercutting payday loans and mortgage from banks is an interesting idea, because people trust the Canada Post name unlike some random mortgage name. Unsure if the union is allowed to/have resources to provide ads ahead of the next election in terms of starting this postal bank and transferring profits from big banks into savings of average joes. Certainly it will be harder to go through with no awareness of the public and their push for this to become a hot topic. You're basically attacking the stronghold of many financial powerhouses and I'm inclined to think they have more relationships up top than the union, it's a struggle to save people money for sure. Especially when you're grabbing such amounts from the pockets of the wealthy and transferring to the poor.

I think people would really care about saving hundreds and thousands a year, for those who needs it. How will they know about this though is the issue.
