"We are working hard to reach an agreement with the assistance of the special mediator", reads a news release from Canada Post, posted on October 31.

Yesterday, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers said on Facebook that Squamish employees were no longer on strike.

Canada Post employees in the Peace region are noting they will be part of rotating strike action this morning.

"Canada Post will make every effort to minimize the impact, but customers well beyond Montreal may see delays for parcel and mail delivery", the Crown corporation said.

Treat-wise, Starbucks has launched a pair of new food items in the chocolate swirl brioche and the pistachio honey croissant . "We hope they feel the holiday magic that only Starbucks can create during this special time of year".

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says walkouts also started in Charlottetown and Summerside, P.E.I., just after midnight local time on Wednesday, and at 1 a.m. ET in Joliette, Que.

Canada Post workers walked off the job in Kapuskasing, Prince Edward Island and in Quebec on Wednesday. The rotating strikes saw postal workers in the B.C. communities of Fort Nelson, Dawson Creek, Columbia River and Nelson, who had been off the job Tuesday, return to work.

Union workers launched the job action after walking away from the negotiating table when a new contract could not be reached. Those issues include health and safety concerns, Palecek said, adding that the wage offers fall far below expected cost-of-living increases.
