More so I think it's to prepare Canadians for delivery every other day. You own 2 routes, do 1 each day with full flyer coverage, do parcels for both. If they'd gotten rid of door to door they could have done this quite easily (and I wouldn't even be opposed to it). The union would lose it's shit though, so we get night sorting and decreased flyer pay instead. Meanwhile LC's are the big losers and "injuries are up" because grandma still needs her daily junkmail delivered to her unshoveled door at 7 PM in January.
I want the company to evolve. If that means some growing pains while they do another hiring freeze to let more people retire, so be it, that's preferable to a mass layoff when the scales inevitably tip and we see year over year losses. Nothing will bring swift changes faster than insolvency.
