Mail services in Canada have been suspended due to an on-going industrial dispute which has already been causing delays to mail in some areas. Due to this dispute Canada post has now suspended all mail operations across the country. Mail sent since the 10th of June is likely to be affected by this and will be subject to delays. Any mail already in the system is being retained until clearance is given by Canada Post that it can be accepted for delivery. Mail bound for the UK from Canada will also not be dispatched at present. Customer should expect delays to all Canadian bound mail during this time.

A series of tube strikes have been announced by the Rail Maritime and Transport union. They are planning six days of action over a two week period later this month and in June. Drivers will walk out for between 9 and 24 hours from Monday 16th May to Friday 20th May and again from Monday 13th June to Friday 17th June. The move follows a 2-1 vote in favour of industrial action by RMT members in protest at the dismissal of two drivers Eamon Lynch and Arwyn Thomas. If it goes ahead it is likely to cause widespread disruption which could affect millions of customers.
