According to a statement from UPS Canada, effective Monday, November 22, the Canadian Council of Teamsters representing UPS Canada employees initiated a work stoppage.
As a result, UPS says the company is temporarily unable to provide service and regrets the inconvenience caused by this disruption in service.
UPS has implemented contingency plans to deliver all shipments picked up as of Thursday, November 18, however these shipments may continue to experience some delays.
"UPS worked diligently with the Teamster leadership and on October 1st we reached a tentative collective agreement that offered significant enhancements for our employees. We are extremely disappointed that the proposal was not accepted by the membership and that the Teamster leadership has initiated this unnecessary action," said the statement.
The following services are suspended until negotiations are resolved:
-Pick up and delivery of all UPS Canada courier shipments destined for locations within Canada, to the U.S. or to Worldwide destinations -UPS Standard to Canada
Delivery of UPS Worldwide ExpressSM and UPS Worldwide ExpeditedSM shipments into Canada will continue, however these services may experience some delays.
