Facilities Management, on the Fredericton campus, wishes to inform you of potential delays in receiving mail and parcels from Canada Post.

The delay is due to CUPW conducting rotating strikes across Canada.While negotiations continue with the help of a special mediator, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began strike action in Montréal at 10:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 29. Employees in Winnipeg and Brandon, Man., Thunder Bay, Oshawa and Pickering, Ont., and ÎIes-de-la-Madeleine, Que., returned to work following CUPW’s strike activity in those locations.

Rotating strikes continue in B.C. in Prince George and several locations of the Lower Mainland (Maple Ridge, Surrey, Chilliwack, Squamish, Langley, Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Abbotsford, New Westminster, Mission and Hope and Aldergrove), as well as in Lloydminster, Sask., and Peterborough, Ont.

Mail and parcels will not be delivered or picked up in the impacted areas while the union continues their strike activity.

If you wish to register for daily updates by email on the rotating strikes locations, please register here.

UNB Mail Services will continue to deliver and pick up mail and parcels as usual, if anything changes a notice will be sent out to campus. Please be aware that there may be delays on items arriving to their final destination.
