    It was a lock-out not a strike. Big difference that the media seems to be missing. Your mail stopped because of Canada Post, not the mail men.

    Really? Because I remember a vote that was in-favour of job action, and rotating strikes that precipitated the lockout.

    Really. Those rotating strikes that affected 1 place at at time for only 24 hours at a time were a heck of a lot less damaging than affecting the entire country for 10 business days like the lockout did.

    ..... but yeah, lets only blame the workers for it.

    And the workers voted in favour of the strike in March/April in regards to the offer at the time. The offers in May/June would have had a much different outcome if there was another vote. If Canada Post didn't lock everyone out the packages would be arriving about the same time, maybe 1 or 2 days later.

    I just meant strike because it started with rotating strikes. I didn't mean to start a debate. I'm not taking any sides on the issue.

    Still no parcels for me though.
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Look guys, I didn't mean to ruffle any feathers and I'm the first to admit that I don't have any clue whats going on with Canada Post and its workers BUT as a unionized government worker, I have seen firsthand what the "workers" get away with. My best friend at work brags to me how he only works for about 4 hours a day and spends the rest of his time on his iphone. It makes me sick. In this day and age, with this economy, i thank my lucky stars that i have the job i have, with the benefits i have and that makes me work twice as hard as the guy next to me. I'm not saying that my Employer is always right but i'm not about to blame one side or the other 100%

    I'm a unionized govt worker and I can tell you this: no one is irreplaceable. Your guy getting away with all that stuff? The union couldn't protect his ass forever if his superiors started taking note of all his behavior - spending most of your time at work doing unauthorized stuff is basically ripping your employer off, I don't know the term in english for it (I'm from Quebec) but here we call it something akin to 'worktime theft', and it will get people fired. I've seen it happen.

    You're right, it's "time theft" in english If his employer starts issuing written warnings he could get fired in no time. The union can only go so far to protect him. If his employer has reasonable grounds for termination then there's nothing anyone can do.

    I haven't received any of my parcels yet. I'm very, very concerned. One parcel was from quite a while before the strike business, my 2 Catra replacements (bad paint issues), my June sub and June order.

    My Faceless One & Battle Ground Teela arrived yesterday. No QC issues either. Plus my Big Bad Toy Store order arrived Monday, so everything ordered pre-lockout has arrived. What a relief, knowing that's over with.

    Now I can look forward to the 15th sale.... I just wish I had enough $$ to get Battle Cat & Panthor as part of my order (I'm hoping to get Clawful & Buzz-off, WSOD willing)
