Shipping To Canada Resumes!

Canada Post employees are back at work today, with mail pickup and delivery expected to resume next week, following passage of return to work legislation.

Canada has had no mail service since June 16. The shutdown was meant to force a resolution to a longstanding dispute with the postal workers union and put an end to rotating strikes across the country.

Negotiations between the parties continued, but talks broke down with wages and pensions being the main sticking points.

As it turns out, workers will receive a government imposed wage increase that is less than what Canada Post management offered.

Canada Post apologizes for the service disruption and asks for continued patience as it works through the large backlog of mail which may take some time to resume to normal after the last 2 weeks! It would be wise to still advise your buyers that the mail sent to Canada could still take some time to get to them.

With the new financial year started, buyers will be flocking back to eBay after these few quiet weeks, so make sure your prepared for your local and international buyers!

Have a great eBay weekend!
