Another strike for Toronto tomorrow?? So does that mean that Toronto LCs won’t get paid for half a day for another “nothing burger”??

So if your city is on the list, you start work at noon?
Yes.
Cross the picket line if there's one.

I'd highly advise against crossing the picket line. Don't start before noon if your local is on the list. The union is in a spiteful mood.

I would suggest everyone report to work at 12 PST regardless. Otherwise they might considering you AWOL. Individual results may vary.

The union couldn't care less about how much you make.
Especially if they can't take their cut because of the strike.

I would never cross a picket line. I was just wondering what they expected from us starting at noon.

They can't legally stop me from going to work after 12:00pm.
I can call the popo if they try anything to stop me from crossing the picket line?

Picket lines after 12pm would be against the law, Bil C-89!

Another thing is that everyone on strike tomorrow will be working until 8, 9pm... not a very safe move!

Keep in mind it's noon EASTERN. So 9 pacific. Don't be late, management will be happy to write people up for late/no shows. Things are gonna be tense.

edit: Assuming your city is still on strike. If you're wave 1 I'd really just suggest showing up at 8 and standing in the line for an hour.

I'm guessing they will only make us work 4 hours. Take out your parcels, and deal with the mail tomorrow. So much for the one day flyer!!

City mail usually has a cut off at 6:00AM and arrive at the Depot by 8:00AM.
Rural mail is slightly earlier at around midnight to 3AM.

Most sorting plants are on halt right now so I doubt you will be getting any mail tomorrow beside those have already arrived at the depot.
Good luck on Thursday, though.

Ok that’s what I thought. Rarely happens where I am. It’s been ages.
Must be nice. It can be weekly in my depot.
