Local postal workers don’t want a work stoppage.

That was the message this morning as representatives of CUPW Local 612 met the media to talk about the possibility of being locked out by Canada Post.

Local union President Al McMahon says Canada Post is constantly crying poor…which just isn’t the case.

He says they’ve made over 300-million dollars in profit in the last two-plus years.

Canada Post issued a 72-hour lockout notice to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers earlier this week, meaning mail delivery could stop by Friday.

A Canada Post work stoppage would effect 250 workers in Sudbury, Espanola, Manitoulin Island and the French River.
