FYI - Canada Post - shoppers vs. corporate post office

I got this email today, thought I would share..

[QUOTE]Canada Post,

" I learned something over Christmas that I feel compelled to share with you.
This won't change your life dramatically or help you survive the apocalypse but it will save you some $$$.

I recently mailed two identical packages via Canada Post one week apart.
One would think that the postage should be exactly the same...well, let me tell you...

Pkg # 1 was mailed from an actual Canada Post Office. Postage came to $11.74. Since I knew a second identical package would be mailed in about a week's time, I bought sufficient postage for the second pkg while I was there.

When it came time to mail Pkg #2, I went to the post office in Shopper's Drug Mart. I handed the pkg to the clerk to be put in the outbound mail bag, I was informed that I did not have sufficient postage attached. The clerk proceeded to inform me that I needed to purchase and additional $6 worth of stamps. After explaining how I knew exactly what the postage should be, the clerk offered some lame excuse that Canada Post is unionized and they can say and do anything with impunity and if I wished to mail that pkg from Shopper's then I needed to purchase more stamps.

I told the clerk to stuff it and took back my package and headed to the "real" Canada Post Office, where I would raise hell...
Much to my surprise, the Canadian Postal Clerk took my package, weighed it and tossed it in the mail bag, and it was it's way...When I asked if the amount of Postage I had put on the parcel was right she shook her head and said "yup, no problem"...

The Truth comes out:

Canada Post Offices charge postage for packages at the published Canada Post rates. Franchise locations such as Shoppers Drug Mart can charge whatever they like. so remember if you regularly mail packages at franchise locations (ie Shoppers Drug Mart,) you are probably paying too much. Franchise locations are found in shopping malls, drug stores and private businesses everywhere. From now on, all of my mailing will be done from a real Canada Post location.


Still perplexed by what I was told by the girl in Shoppers, I fired off an email to Canada Post for clarification. This is the reply I got from them:




Thank you for your message to Canada Post.

A postal outlet is not a federal government agency and is not owned or managed by Canada Post. For example if the postal outlet is within grocery store or pharmacy it would follow the stores working hours; therefore if the store must be closed, so will the postal outlet inside.
Only Canada Post Depots and Corporate Post Offices are obligated to follow the price of stamps and postal products that are legislated by Canada Post. Any commercial and private establishment may charge extra fees as a convenience to their customers. It is at their discretion to apply additional service fees to products that they sell. We suggest visiting a Corporate Post Office in order to avoid paying additional service charges that corner stores or other establishment may implement on their products.

Before I ship packages using the postal system, I go to the CP website. I enter the dimensions of the box and the weight and get how much it should cost to ship using my shipping choice. I then take it to SDM, and nine times out of ten, its within a few cents. I think your post is bogus.

lol @ the Shoppers worker saying "they are unionized and can do whatever they want"


The ones who work at shoppers are shoppers employees, not canada post employees.

BUT in their defense, the SDM i go to (Markham & stouffville locations) usually have the same shipping costs as the actual post office retail stores.

I always check online before heading to SDM and it's never been off. Maybe the SDM clerk was poorly trained and priced Xpresspost instead of reg parcel, etc. There's no way it'll be that far off, even if they did charge more...

Did go to one drug store postal station and they were way off, more than double. The person was a newbie and didn't know what she was doing, I set her straight. One thing I do find the post office good for is knowing the "good deals" off the top of their heads, like when Express Post is actually cheaper than regular post if you're insuring the package, etc.

I've done quite a few mailing outwards and they have always been pretty exact on pricing.

Sounds more like a case of a retail employee not understanding how to price something. RPOs can't pick and choose the cost of stamps or parcels; they have to follow the same pricing as the rest of Canada Post's retail outlets. RPOs aren't ever meant as a standalone business. They are brought into existing businesses to increase that location's foot traffic, as well as to provide a convenient location for customers to have access to a retail post office.

Any RPO that is intentionally charging extra for standard Canada Post services and pocketing the profits would be in serious trouble.

I also received this email and thought it sounded like BS. I just googled it and confirmed that it was in fact BS. Why don't people check these things out before spreading them? I hate that I am always the one pointing out to people that they are spreading crap.

From Canada Post's Facebook page:
[QUOTE]Over the holidays, a customer contacted us by email to ask us why private sector partners would be allowed to charge more for the same service provided by corporate offices. The reply they received contained misinformation and we would like our customers to know the facts - rates are the same at all Canada Post establishments both corporate and private sector partner locations. It is very important to us that your customer experience is the same no matter where you choose to shop. In fact, the agreement that Canada Post has with its private sector partners specifies that the maximum postal rates that they can charge are the Canada Post published rates. If a postal outlet charges prices that are over the Canada Post published rates, they are in violation of their contract. You should also know that the equipment used by private sector postal outlets is programmed with Canada Post’s published rates. Therefore, the rates should be the same no matter where you choose to get postal services. We are very disappointed to hear of this experience and we are investigating the matter. If you have any questions or concerns about our rates, contact us at http://canadapost.ca/contactus[/QUOTE]

People seem to love to think that a business is 'getting one over on them'.
Whoever wrote that original chain letter obvious got someone that didn't understand the shipping classes and rates.

I think it depends on the person at the counter at either the station or an outlet:

As the Star recently found, after mailing eight similar packages from Canada Post outlets across the GTA, how much you pay depends in large part on the quality of information – and kindness – at the till.

When I want to mail something, I go to Canada Post website, use eServices to pay for my shipment (oh BTW getting a discount in the process for using eServices), I pay with my CC instantly, print a shipping label, tape it on the box with packing tape, and drop it in the nearest mailbox.

I measure and weigh it myself, and yeah sometimes I guesstimate the weight. Have I ever had a package returned out of maybe 50 shipments? No.

Why anyone would bother to go out of their way to wait in line at a post office to mail a package when these tools are available for free (actually better than free since you get a discount), is beyond me.

This is a totally bogus post and the OP is a moron for posting it. It is typical of the many fake urban legends which are circulating by email and the OP should have put some effort into verifying it first before posting.

All postal outlets - including the privately run ones in drug stores and the like - use Canada Post's computer system in determining rates. They have no discretion whatsoever in charging anything else. It is not allowed. Certainly the clerks can make mistakes but that's all they are - mistakes.

If you want to know exactly what you are going to be charged you can look up the rates on the Canada Post web site as has been mentioned. You do need an accurate weight though to get the correct rate.

Has all the hallmarks of a bogus story, but ...

a cost variation between different postal outlets could arise if,

the measured weight of a package is right on the threshold of a rate class

The clerk could make a judgement call based on:
- how accurate they know their scale is
- wanting to help the customer out, or,
- playing it on the safe side

Not a S.D.M. vs. regular P.O. issue, just a "you win some, you lose some" situation.

Canada Post’s new vaccination requirement closes Beaverlodge post office

The Canada Post outlet in Beaverlodge was closed Monday after employees were sent home for non-compliance with the corporation’s new vaccination practice that became effective last Friday.

Grande Prairie Town & Country News has learned that employees received an email from Canada Post outlining they would be placed on unpaid leave as of Monday and would remain so until they became compliant. The corporation demanded employees report their vaccination status by Nov. 26.

The email also stated employees are prohibited from attending work.

By Wednesday afternoon, the front service counter was open; it was unknown by press time if it would remain open with regular hours.

It’s leaving residents frustrated ahead of a busy holiday season. Customers arriving Monday morning were mystified by the closed doors to the customer service area though there was access to the mailboxes. There was no signage explaining the closure.

By late afternoon, a notice from Canada Post had been posted on the door: “We are currently experiencing a staffing issue that means the post office has been temporarily closed.

“We are putting contingency measures in place to ensure residents can access their mail and parcels while we work to hire staff needed to reopen the post office.”

It is unclear if any mail is being accepted at the outlet, or if sorting is taking place.

Town & Country News contacted Canada Post about the closure, specifically its extent and how long it might last.

Canada Post spokesperson Valérie Chartrand would only say the Beaverlodge post office is temporarily closed due to staffing issues. She would not confirm whether those staffing issues were related to the vaccine requirement.

Chartrand said the corporation is “committed to serving the people of Beaverlodge and are currently working on contingency plans.

“Once plans are finalized we will communicate them to customers.”

The Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA), who represent workers in Beaverlodge, did not respond to our interview request as of press time.

In November, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) issued a cease-and-desist application against the Canada Post vaccination practice; an arbitrator did not grant the order.

“Unfortunately, we know that some of our members will be impacted by the decision and will be placed on leave without pay after Nov. 26,” CUPW stated in a news release.

Meanwhile, six post offices across the province were shuttered Monday, according to a Global News report.

CBC reported that in La Crete, two full-time postal workers quit in protest ahead of the vaccine mandate.

According to a Global News report, Lamont also saw its post office closed this week.

It promises to be a contentious issue going into the corporation’s busiest season of the year.

Among employee grievances is that Canada Post will not accept rapid testing for employees who refuse to get vaccinated, according to the CPAA.

The CPAA said it formally put the employer on notice that for each post office the corporation closes because of the implementation of the vaccination practice, we will file grievances.”

Evidence of the public’s mounting frustration is easy to see; locals gathered around the closed post office were swapping speculation about its closure. Meanwhile, many took to social media to express their concerns. Many claimed personal knowledge the closure was due to the vaccine mandate; others were simply worried about paycheques or Christmas packages that were due in the mail.

Report a digital subscription issue

By DAVID SHARP, The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The last holiday season was far from the most wonderful time of the year for the U.S. Postal Service: Sick and quarantined workers, a flood of packages from shoppers loath to set foot in stores and a last-minute dump of packages from overwhelmed private shippers.

Postal workers who recall packages and letters piled up in distribution hubs are better prepared this time as they gear up for another pandemic crunch. But low product inventories, and port and supply chain disruptions are creating new uncertainty about getting gifts delivered.

Already, workers are seeing a surge in holiday packages that began several weeks ago.

“A lot of the workers are saying, ‘Oh no. Here we go again,’” said Scott Adams, local president of the American Postal Workers Union in Portland.

The U.S. Postal Service and private shippers UPS and FedEx are bolstering their hiring — bringing in about 230,000 temporary workers — and taking other steps to ensure they don’t become overwhelmed by packages.

Nearly 3.4 billion parcels are expected to crisscross the country this holiday season, representing an estimated increase of about 400 million compared to last year, said Satish Jindel, from Pennsylvania-based ShipMatrix, which analyzes shipping package data.

When cards and letters are included, the U.S. Postal Service said it’ll be delivering more than 12 billion items.

“The pandemic is still here. The supply chain is a challenge that’s going to impact how people shop and how products move,” said Mark Dimondstein, president of the American Postal Workers Union, which represents more than 200,000 postal workers.

Despite the precarious situation, the Postal Service, UPS and FedEx are in better shape to handle the peak volume, and several trends could work in their favor, Jindel said.

More people are shopping in stores compared to last year, and people have been placing online orders earlier because they’re keenly aware of supply chain problems, Jindel said. Also, with workers returning to offices, there are fewer office supply shipments being made to homes, he said.

Most importantly, the shippers are adapting after their rough-and-tumble experience last year, he said.

U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, who faced withering criticism last year but reported on-time improvements and reduced operating losses this month, says the service is ready for the crunch.

“We are ready, so send us your packages and your mail,” he said.

A year ago, more than a third of Postal Service first-class mail was late by the time Christmas arrived.

Tractor-trailers stuffed with mail were left idling outside some postal-sorting facilities. Packages and letters piled up in distribution hubs. Delays grew by days, and then weeks, in many instances.

Two things were painfully obvious. More workers and more space were needed — and both are being addressed.

To get a handle of the volume, the Postal Service is transitioning more than 30,000 non-career employees to the ranks of career employees by peak season, hiring 40,000 seasonal employees, and leasing extra space at more than 100 locations to ensure there’s room for parcels.

The Postal Service installed more than 100 new package sorting machines as of early November, part of $40 billion of planned investment over 10 years. Also, more than 50 package systems capable of sorting large packages are expected to be deployed before December. Combined, these expand capacity by an additional 4.5 million packages per day, officials said.

UPS, for its part, is hiring more than 100,000 seasonal employees across the country and continues to add aircraft and automation. It expects nearly 90% of its packages to flow through automated facilities by year’s end.

FedEx, meanwhile, is in the process of boosting its nationwide workforce by 90,000 across its operating companies. Most of those new workers are expected to remain after the holidays, the company said.

Black Friday 2021 shopping

Despite all those extra workers, the shippers agree that this is not the year for shoppers to procrastinate.
