Online SIM delivery may be longer than usual until Canada Post rotating strike has ended

Hey Community,

 

You may have heard that Canada Post announced a rotating strike effective today, meaning that online SIM delivery times may be longer than usual until they’ve come to a resolution. For the time being, we recommend you pick up a SIM by visiting one of our retail partners. To find your nearest participating retail partner, click here.

 

As more information becomes available, we will be sure to keep you in the loop!

 

If you have any questions, let us know by posting below.

Officially, the rotating strike started on Monday, October 22nd.  This is day 3 of the rotating strikes.

 

As for Wal-Mart - I assume they'll use the strike as an excuse to force in store only, as they won't be able to refill their stock.  Yes, I'm sure they get a more substantial courier service to get it to them.

@slash407how can you say that? Yesterday the strike was in Toronto the day before in Victoria.  If sims were supposed to be sorted and shipped from Toronto yesterday then they would not have been causing a delay for every sim purchaser not just rural. How long the delay is depends on how fast the sorting plant can get and process the backlog.

Unfortunately, that's not the case, and it's quite the opposite.  These strikes started on Monday, and on that day,  this 24 strike included places such sich as Windsor, Victoria, and Edmonton, which are all populated urban areas.

 

In addition, almost all of Toronto and surrounding areas have been down all of both Tuesday and Wednesday.  This includes Mississauga's main sorting plant, which two thirds of all packages in Canada go through.

 

Further, Public Mobile ships out of the Toronto area.  This means, that unless a different shipping company is used,  most sim card shipments going out the past few days have aleady been delayed.  It would also mean that Public Mobile hasn't shipped anything in 48 hours (unlesss different company used).

They survive just fine. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers just want more full time positions because part time positions pay less and have no benefits.

Just remember, no tax money is provided to Canada Post..  it’s a privately run company.

 

They make a ton of money, and own the Puralator Courier company also.
