    Canada mail flowing again after strike ends

    June 28, 2011|By Robert Nolin, Sun Sentinel

    In a move sure to cheer South Florida's Canadian visitors, the U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday resumed accepting mail for Canada.

    The service re-start came after the Canadian government ordered striking employees of Canada Post, the country's mail service, back to work on Monday night. The workers, protesting proposed cuts to medical and pension benefits, had been on a rotating strike since May 30.

    Canada Post suspended operations June 14, hoping the lockout would force the Canadian Union of Postal Workers to the bargaining table. The strike cost the service about $100 million.

    The U.S. Postal Service stopped taking mail intended for Canada during the strike. Mail from the U.S. started flowing north again on Tuesday.

    But it may flow a tad slower than usual, due to a backlog that accumulated during the strike. The suspended mail will be posted in stages, U.S. Postal Service spokeswoman Patricia Licata said Tuesday from her office in Washington, D.C.
    Is it over yet?
