I’m not sure if the same is happening in bc but we did get all this info we had to read on delivering it and checking ids and whatever.

Is anyone else worried about safety? Do you think people are going to try to rob us? I know the packages are ‘discreet’, but people will work our quickly that the 19+ on the packageing means something good is inside.

Trucks may get broken into. I dont see many robberies or muggings.

How many provinces are only using CP? Weed deliveries alone will cover wage increases for the next 4 years. Estimated sales of 10billion the first year? With almost no stores? Thats a lot of deliveries.

I don’t see how we don’t dominate this market. It seems set up for us.

im already on an over assessed route, im guessing atleast half an hour extra a day just on deliveries of weed in the coming weeks, by the time a customer has to sign etc or if not home card it..its going to be crazy..no extra time value , that's for sure

we are supporting a wannabe political party - how many millions would this CUPW dream cost? I guess they can just have us deliver flyers for free to help with their dream.....

My first post, and I have been reading a ton of this thread. I know, newb here, but I go for my interview in Stoney Creek next week. Any pointers? I took the advice of a friend of mine who is a temp in St. Catharines (where we live) who told me to apply to Hamilton as it was the fastest route to FT. I just recently lost my job as a project manager for a software company and I need something that I can do until I retire. I am 42 now and have a wife and two amazing children. Can anyone confirm that applying to Hamilton was a smart move to fast-track as much as I can to get to FT?

Also, I see a lot of contempt here for CUPW. Have you all really lost your faith in the union? I have never worked in a union environment before.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer.

Because CPC won’t meet our demands? What exactly do you want to happen?
He wants to endlessly complain about the union from literally every angle possible.

Who the **** demanded CUPW using our dues for its political aspirations? Maybe fools like you I’d guess.

there's no reason to be hurling insults. express your point respectfully and it should be respected. no one of us or all of us here will have any sway over where the leadership decides to take us. so the hostility is unnecessary.
FWIW my take is notice will be given sunday night/monday morning 001 hours. when legal weed orders gets caught in the mail it will maximize public pressure to resolve this thing quicker by agreeing to more union demands.

I’m not sure what you mean specifically, but I would assume because it is in the constitution and unions normally operate as social justice warrior allies. I don’t necessarily agree with that, but it’s kind of baked into the union cake. If I felt strongly enough about it, there’s a process which could be followed to attempt to overturn it.

At Our Depot we just had someone transfer back to our depot from Hamilton..Hamilton depot downtown...she said it was terrible..the route she was on had 1500 door to door points of call...was taking her 12 hours a day....so she tansfered back to our depot even though she lives in Hamilton..so the 45 minute commute is still worth it...I see you were a project manager ,,my wife is a project manager making over 100 k...she left a company in Burlington that is hiring project managers..if you want send me a pm if interested in that company
personally would not go the canada post route as things are getting worse and worse....
