A bit of light at the end of the tunnel.
The threat of possible job action by Canada Post workers has been placed on hold for 24 hours.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers made the announcement in a statement issued late Sunday night.
The union served 72 hour strike notice Thursday night, accusing Canada Post of forcing a labour disruption by refusing to bargain in good faith.
It said that if there was no deal by midnight Sunday, it would begin job action today by having its members refuse to work overtime on a rotating basis, starting in Alberta and the Northwest Territories.
The two sides have been deadlocked for months on the issues of pay scales for rural letter carriers and proposed changes to pensions for future employees.
