Members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) will be in a legal strike position on Wednesday, September 26 after urban and rural carriers voted to strike if contract talks with Canada Post fall through. Canada Post could also lock out its employees on that date. This will cause postal service disruption until a negotiated settlement is reached.
Customs will not extend the payment terms of duties and taxes as a result of a postal strike, and payment terms will remain unchanged throughout the disruption.
In the event that mail service is disrupted, for your convenience, Livingston International will continue to provide electronic invoicing and payment options to all clients. Clients will receive their invoices either electronically or by courier.
The following are options to remit payment to Livingston:
- Pre-authorized debit
- Bank wire transfer
- Online/telephone banking
- Checks can be couriered to our office in Mississauga ON, Montreal QC, or Vancouver BC
As further developments occur, we will provide details directly through email communication. You can also stay informed by visiting Canada Post’s website for negotiation updates.
If you have any questions about accessing your invoices during the strike, or regarding your payment options, please contact your client service representative directly.
