Saskatchewan postal workers join growing strike
Saskatoon, Weyburn and Moose Jaw locals walked off job Tuesday morning
Members of three Saskatchewan postal worker locals walked off the job Tuesday morning between 6 and 8 a.m. CST.
Saskatoon, Weyburn and Moose Jaw joined the list of members of Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) who are on strike.
CUPW national president Mike Palecek said in a news release that contract offers proposed to the union do not address any major issues.
