Canada Post strikes are once again hitting Northumberland.
Last week workers in Cobourg did a 24 hour strike, and president of the Port Hope local, Tyler Soundy, says now, it’s their turn.
Soundy says they’re a small local of only 22 people, but they were outside an hour before the picketing was set to begin and the strikers were boisterous and full of energy.
He adds that their two main concerns are the fact that they’ve been bleeding wages and are making six per cent less in buying power than they were 10 years ago, and issues surrounding delivery.
Soundy says for now, they’re only set to be striking today, and Port Hope carriers will be back to business as usual tomorrow morning.
