eBay sellers during Canada Post strike

I received an email from eBay:
As you are likely aware, there is a possibility that Canada Post services will be impacted by a labour disruption as early as July 2, 2016. We encourage you to visit to read about the latest developments and sign up for email updates.

In the event of a Canada Post labour disruption, eBay will remain open for business, and we’re asking you to do the same. There is no need to put your store on vacation hold, to end listings, or to zero out quantities on multi-quantity listings.

Should Canada Post service be disrupted, we recommend that sellers:

Continue to list and sell on eBay; and
Be considerate and accommodate buyers who may wish to cancel orders if they have not yet been shipped.
eBay will be monitoring, and where possible adjusting, estimated delivery dates and eBay Money Back Guarantee timelines to ensure that sellers are not penalized for shipping delays.

eBay will communicate with buyers who purchase Canadian items prior to, or during, a labour disruption to ensure they are aware of the likelihood of shipping delays.

The eBay Canada Team will post additional details on the Announcements Board as they become available.

Thank you,

eBay Canada
LOL I have no doubt eBay would screw over its sellers during this strike.

Unless eBay can provide a guarantee that they will not allow negatives or Item Not Received cases (which they cant), I will not be selling during this time. Considering the way they've treated sellers, I have no doubt they would screw over their sellers during this strike.

Will you continue doing business?

Yea, won't be trusting eBay. If your selling, I suggest you to stop if you use canada post as your shipping courier.

I'll continue selling but will use an alternate carrier.
