St John’s Mayor Dennis O’Keefe declares support to postal union workers

St. John’s Mayor Dennis O’Keefe is throwing his support behind local members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, and their push to fight a Canada Post plan to eliminate home mail delivery.

“Good, dependable mail delivery is a service that we all have a right to enjoy,” said O’Keefe.

O’Keefe met with Mike McDonald and Craig Dyer, members of the local branch of the postal workers’ union on Friday, to hear their concerns about Canada Post’s plan to eliminate home mail delivery within the next five years. The Crown corporation also said it would significantly increase the cost of mailing a letter.
