I've got something coming in from last month on USPS.....i'm guessing it is getting handled by Canada Post when it reaches Canadian soil......

Is there any way to get USPS to get UPS or DHL to pick it up?

Can't wait till they pass a bill that allows the public to vote on whether to disban an Union once they go on strike.

Can see it now.

Teachers on strike.

Public Vote:
1) Give them more money, and more time off so they can spent less time teaching the young

2) Fire the lot of them, then hire those who would like to work.

I'd be voting #2

Given that it's public money, I agree with that proposal.

Facts are fact, Canada Post is a very nepotistic organization that closes it's doors to outside employment just like most every other Union. In this economic climate where people are begging for any employment the fact that they have the audacity to lockout speaks volumes. So screw Canada post and all of their employee's, Should lay every one of them off and open the jobs to the people Begging for work that pays that damn well.

It fills me with rage thinking about it.

I have been waiting for my new Systema PTW SuperMax for over six months now. It was shipped one day before the lockout from Calgary and is now stuck somewhere in the system. I'm PISSED! Not pissed enough however to convert over to a Courier service whom I consider to be far worse than CP.

Oh hi there, I just GMed your mail service!

I usually take an anti-union stance on most current events, but I still try to keep an open mind. At least the wages aren't as obscene as other, car related north american companies. The changes proposed to create a two-tiered compensation plan was not legal. I was cautiously taking interest in the union argument.

Then my mail came in as balls of crumpled paper. Each envelope lovingly compressed by the hand of the asshole who is loosing an uphill battle driven by drunken monkeys calling themselves the CUPW.

I foresee lots of interesting student jobs opening up by the bucket.

This strike is a huge kick in the nuts as we use CP exclusively.

We are going to look at alternatives as well but I am not confident I will source something as economical. Then there is the cost of getting it integrated with our website. Bastards...

I believe in order to have anything done you need to lodge a complaint with the ombudsman for CP. One of their carriers forged my signature and when I complained I was told tere is nothing they (CP) can do about it.

RCMP can handle that, no? IIRC it's a federal crime to tamper with mail.
