Unifor votes for strike against DHL

Ottawa, Ontario—DHL’s Unifor employees have voted 90 percent in favour of national strike against DHL.

Unifor represents all DHL workers outside of Québec. DHL workers will be in a legal strike position on Sunday, February 5.

“Forcing our members into a work stoppage will have far-reaching implications for thousands of DHL customers,” said Unifor National Representative Mario Santos. “A February strike is assured if DHL tries to roll back benefits and terms of work.”

“DHL is a massively profitable company and our goal is to secure fair compensation for the workers who make DHL successful,” said Santos. “Concessions are a non-starter for our members.”

Unifor’s 800 members at DHL work primarily as express mail couriers and logistics administrators.
