Postal Strike Eminent?

Several banking institutions and internet providers have issued warnings about the possibility of a postal strike. And online retailers like Amazon.ca, chapters.indigo.ca and Newegg.ca, are readying alternative shipping methods for their clients.

I believe all three retailers have a shipping option to deliver parcels to your local post office and some retailers also deliver to their stores. But many retailers have their own courier services so keep an eye on their sites and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers site for details.
