If you feel confident that you will be able to ship with another method if in fact the strike happens (or yikes continues for awhile) and let your organizer know upon signup, its fine to join up.  You are correct in the late with communication, although in a circumstance like a postal strike the organizer should note that in your feedback as well.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

You know what irks me???  OK, may things, apparently, I am an irritable angry person lately, but Purolator is owned by Canada Post!!  They complain about loss of profits, but loss of service/lockouts/strikes upset customers who will find other alternatives, and may use those alternative services permanently!

Anyways, it sounds like it is not a full out, shut down services strike - but they will do rotating job action.  Not sure about the details yet, how regions are set out, how long stoppage will be in each region, etc.  So sounds like packages will get delivered.... eventually.

Yeah. I just decided to opt out of a swap because of the uncertainty.  I'm not close to alternate options for delivery, and I'd hate to hold up feedback and happy goodies, then there's the higher chance things could get lost if they are just doing the revolving strike thing (I'd assume anyway)....  I understand why they are striking, and I think it's fair to do so.  It just makes things complicated...

I read today that they will not work overtime but will still be delivering in Alberta and the NWT.  So no definitive work stoppage just yet.
