Howdy folks. I collect a very erratic array of figures, to the point where I don't even really know all the shit I have off the top of my head. Doesn't stop me from taking pictures of them though. Most of my pics go up on my Tumblr, or my DeviantArt, along with all sorts of other random stuff.
Now we're TOTALLY f*cked. The managers are getting pissed off that the union is being a bunch of greedy shits, so they've instigated a full mail lockout.
________________________________________________________________________________ Lockout at Canada Post – What It Means To Customers
2011/06/15 Mail Deposit and Delivery
* All mail processing plants and letter carrier depots are closed and all facilities have been secured. No new mail will be accepted. Large volume mailers cannot deposit or receive mail. * Mail Delivery is suspended to all addresses served by letter carriers represented by the CUPW (Urban). Some mail delivery will continue over the first few days of the lockout to clear mail remaining in the system in suburban and rural areas where delivery employees are represented by a different bargaining unit. * Street Letter Boxes, mail slots on Community Mail Boxes, and other Canada Post mail-receiving equipment have been cleared and sealed to prevent mail from being deposited. * Through a previous agreement, Canada Post and CUPW will ensure that a number of socio-economic cheques will be delivered on June 20. Please visit canadapost.ca/cheques for more information.
* All post offices staffed by CUPW members are closed. * Post Offices located in suburban and rural areas staffed by members of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants (CPAA) continue to be open but cannot accept new mail. * Authorized Dealer Post Offices are also open but cannot accept new mail. Some Dealer Post Offices may be operating at reduced hours. * Post Offices that remain open offer limited products such as MoneyGram and Money Orders but no new mail will be accepted. Many open Post Offices will also have parcels and other mail items delivered prior to the lockout available for customers to pick up. ________________________________________________________________________________
So don't be expecting any packages any time soon. If you want to do something, go harass your local Canada Post Union Representative.
WHY DOES OUR MAIL SERVICE SUUUUUCCCKKKKKKKKK
AMIAMI UPDATE: I just received an email from Amiami regarding the strike. These guys are total bros. Basically, because of the strike, they're going to "freeze" any Canadian orders; basically, any orders for anything that comes out this month they're just going to hold it at their warehouse until either the strike ends, on July comes, at which point they intend to reevaluate the situation. So at least we don't have to worry about our Amiami orders vanishing into the mail-strom. :P
