One of Canada’s largest international parcel shipping companies has received 72-hour strike notice after bargaining between DHL and Unifor has stalled.

“We’re left with no other choice if DHL won’t take concessions off the bargaining table,” said Mario Santos, Unifor National Representative. “The level of disruption that DHL is inviting for customers is unfortunate, but avoidable.”
