The series of rotating strikes began on October 22, and the union representing the workers say it will continue until a deal is reached.

Canada Post says CUPW is also conducting strikes in Sault Ste.

Members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) in Barrie walked off the job late Sunday night as part of the ongoing rotating strikes.

The strike meant no mail was going out of the Canada Post depot on Roy Boulevard or from retail outlets in Brantford and Paris, said Cuda.

Cuda said one of the union's main areas of concern is the health and safety of its members who are "overburdened and working extremely long hours".

An updated list of locals participating in the rotating strikes can be found on the CUPW website.

The union and the postal service have been unable to reach new collective agreements for two bargaining units after 10 months of negotiations.

Cheeke said over the past two years, workers have seen a 50 per cent increase in parcel delivery thanks to the rise of online shopping.

"Parcel volumes continue to grow and we are going into peak season", when Canada Post could be delivering one million parcels a day, he said.

A statement by CUPW said the goal of the gathering would be to "call on the government to continue to respect the collective bargaining process, and press Canada Post to negotiate in earnest with striking postal workers".

The crown corporation said its operations have been shut down in more than 90 communities across Canada since the strike was started, causing backlogs and delays in the system. "Until Canada Post negotiators address it, we can solve it for ourselves in the meantime", said Palecek.

But he said Canada Post has made significant offers on wages, benefits and working conditions and "we're not asking them for concessions or rollbacks".
