Signs of Progress in Canada Post Labor Dispute

If you were worried about a disruption in your eCommerce shipments to Canada because of the looming labor disruption at Canada Post, you should be OK for now, labor relations experts say.

Even if negotiations fail, either side is still required to give 72-hours’ notice of a work stoppage.
