Local Postal Workers Union Feel Proposed Cuts At Canada Post Are Wrong Move

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The Vice President of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers Local is speaking out against proposed cuts at Canada Post.

 

Back in December, the corporation announced they plan to eliminate door to door mail delivery, which would impact about 21,000 residences in the City of Lethbridge, as well they want to increase the cost of stamps, and continue cutting existing postal outlets and hours.

 

Ken Sears says about 300 to 400 new community mailboxes would need to be installed in the city and he's concerned about where they would be located. Sears says "just stop and think about north Lethbridge, 12 Street A North or any of those streets, they're narrow, they have cars parked along them most of the day, they have narrow boulevards if they have boulevards at all, and yet they're going to have to try and find a place to put a community mailbox there where 60 people would be coming potentially during the course of a day to pick up their mail."

 

Sears feels instead of cutting services, Canada Post should look at expanding with things like same day or next day delivery of goods ordered over the internet and the reintroduction of postal banking in order to best serve the citizens of this country.
