So far there are no concrete plans to hold a rotating strike at Thunder Bay's post office. That's according to CUPW Local President Wendy Johnston who says if there was a strike they'd only be told the day before. Victoria and Moncton will experience the rotating strikes next. Johnston does note that some routes in the city are not getting mail delivered because the company won't put more staff on or offer overtime.
The outgoing President of Confederation College is being honoured for her work in the region. Pat Lang has received a national Award for her advocacy in getting students the advanced skills education they need in Northern Ontario. Lang has more than doubled the apprenticeship opportunities for Northerners and developed new contract training opportunities for 50-Aboriginal communities.
