What a teaser, I can't wait! I don't think this is making National headlines yet, too much other stuff going on.

I’m taking that extra effort, but believe me, people love it when you treat their items with respect and care, and not like a piece of lard!
I do agree, as Canada post, we should give customers much better service, also posties need to smile more, this job is not rocket science, and we get paid pretty decent money for what it is, yet some posties look so miserable and keep that face even when interacting with customers ....
I haven’t seen that when I do OT. Isn’t that a pretty big no no? We aren’t allowed to safe drop in lobbies in our depot.

I don’t really care about Amazon doing it because their packaging is so distinctive. However, fed ex and others doing it looks bad on me because I know people in the building assume it’s Canada post (some have asked me).

For every customer that appreciates us not leaving their item on the doorstep for safety, there's another that gets pissed off that they have to go to the RPO. We can't win.

A group of employees who work the same shift at a Canada Post facility in Mississauga have been sent home and advised to isolate to prevent further spread of COVID-19 as the number of cases at the site continues to climb.
The Crown corporation said that employees and contractors who worked on the afternoon shift (shift 3) in Gateway East were instructed to leave the Dixie Road location Friday evening and told to self-isolate for 14 days.

COVID-19 Strikes Toronto Gateway East

In recent days, the number of workers testing positive for COVID-19 at the Gateway East facility in Mississauga has greatly increased. Public health authorities have ordered that all shift #3 employees are to self-isolate. These employees will receive paid quarantine leave. All shift #2 employees will have to be tested for COVID-19 or self-isolate for 14 days.

So, Mississauga is effectively shut down. No international, probably running 2 of 3 shifts at half power. F in chat for Canada Post executives, they all just lost their jobs.

I doubt these confirmed positive cases were from the same shift. Probably the number will be really shocking after the test completed for other shifts.
