Canada Post announced it will be extending the lockout notice. The notice, which was first intended to go into effect Friday at 12:01 p.m. has been extended to the morning of July 11.

Canada Post has publically said they would be willing to binding arbitration. However, the union representing their employees is hoping for a negotiated statement.

A statement released on July 7 said the Canadian Union of Postal Works is denying arbitration on a “matter of principal”.

Canada Post and the Union remain at a stalemate over the Union’s asks for high wages in rural areas and pensions alternations Canada Post is seeking to reduce costs.

No talks between the two sides are planned at this time.
