    I am a member of CUPW and this deal stinks. But things werent going well at the table so this will have to do.

    My family needs to eat so i am glad to be going back to work.

    Although things will get back to normal now that the House has passed the bill however dont expect things to be tip top shape for weeks if not months.

    There are numerous backlogs of letters still waiting to be dealt with.

    Honestly, i didnt even know they were on strike all this time. I rarely if ever use Canada Post.
