Image by Grant Neufeld via FlickrI'm here in Toronto, and I can tell you it is not a pretty sight. Streetcars have stopped mid-street; cars have been abandoned on the Don Valley, the 401 is closed, and all the Tims have closed. Torontonians are congregating on the streets with dazed looks on their caffeine-starved faces. CUPW has walked-out and Toronto is paralyzed!!!
Just kidding. But we were beginning to wonder when CUPW was going to show us some love. What's Flin Flon got that Toronto hasn't -- what are we, chopped liver?!
15,000 CUPW members will be idle in Toronto and Montreal effective midnight tonite. How they think a 24 hour stoppage of postal delivery is even going to be noticed, let alone bring the citizens of Toronto and Montreal to their knees, is beyond me.
As one guy said in the comments section of a newspaper, "last week I got mail on two days". If CUPW goes to a three-day a week delivery, that will be an improvement of 50%".
