As of Tuesday, June 28th, 2011, Canada Post services will resume, following the passage of Bill C-6, “An Act to provide for the resumption and continuation of postal services” that was passed in the House of Commons and received royal assent in the Senate earlier on Sunday.

The tension still persists among the postal union members as their demands haven`t been met. “Our members are going back and they're angry, they're quite upset and that resentment is going to the workplace”, declared George Floresco, national vicepresident of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. “They're angry at Canada Post and they're angry at the Harper government. The mail will get processed - we're not angry at the customers, that's for sure - but it's only going to carry on and there won't be any labour peace in the post office for years to come as a result of this.”

Canada Post has apologized for the disruption that affected millions of customers and confirmed that Canadians and Business customers can expect to start receiving mail on Tuesday, June 28th; post offices that were closed will start to reopen the same day and resume normal hours; all mailboxes will be unsealed and ready to receive mail as soon as possible.
