The cost of mailing a first-class letter within Canada is going up Monday by 35 per cent.
    
Canada Post is raising the price of a stamp to 85-cents, up from 63-cents.
    
While the new price applies when buying stamps in bulk, it will cost $1 to buy a single first-class stamp.
    
Canada Post says permanent stamps, which are marked ``p'' will continue to be accepted even though they were bought at the lower price.
    
Canada Post announced the price hike in December, at the same time it also revealed plans to phase out door-to-door mail delivery to the one-third of Canadian homes that still receive it.

    Dear Canada Post employees: You have the power to stop this. The industry you work for is dying, but you can still help your employer find enough time and money to change with the times; you can help your job to CHANGE, rather than help it to DISAPPEAR.

    All you have to do is get rid of your union. The union bosses are NOT looking out for your best interests, but instead are making your job too expensive to be worth it for the sake of lining their own pockets. Decertify your union, and you just might be able to get out of the horrible situation they've put you in.

    For directions on decertifying, visit the Labour Watch website. You still have time.

      @Jack The CEO is ruining this company to prepare it for privatization. If they wanted more people to use it they would drop the price!
      The Conservatives are all about providing less mail delivery and then charging more! If it wasn't a essential service why did they legislate the employees back to work after the management lockout...

    The problems with Canada Post are less a union situation than a real problem with mismanagement at the top.
