Tired of the rotating strikes by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers? Looking forward to having your sales/trades with Canadian members proceed as normal? Does your intuition tell you when you think this strike is going to end? TELL US! ... And possibly win a prize as well!


Welcome to SCF's GUESS THE DATE THE STRIKE WILL END CONTEST!!!


The rules for the contest are simple:

1. PM an SCF hockey moderator with the subject line "Mail Strike Contest #2 - Guess"

2. Indicate in your PM your guess - that is, the DATE on which you think the striking will no longer be in effect. Please take careful note of this. The "winning date" will not be the date that Canada Post officially announces the end of the strike, but rather, the date on which all mail services through Canada Post will resume as normal.

For example: "My guess is that the CUPW strikes will end on Tuesday, June 14, 2011".


3. Respond to this thread indicating that you have PMed your guess to a mod. You only need to say "Guess sent" or "Guess PMed" or something to that effect. You would be wise not to share your guess in this thread. :winking0071:

4. Only one guess per member.

5. You must be a member in good standing with SCF.

6. You must make your guess before Sunday, June 19th, 2011, by 11:59pm EST to qualify. There is no telling when the union of postal workers will stop their strikes, so you would be wise to guess as early as possible!! (Deadline has been extended!)

7. Contest is open to members from all countries, since all are being impacted by this.



More details on the winning prize(s) to follow!




So, it's simple: Guess the date the strike ends, win a prize!

lol, although this is true.

Your guess has been registered nonetheless, royer33455. You can always edit your post to eliminate your guess from being seen by all!

As far as my sources tell me, most recent negotiations have broken off and the situation will continue for the majority of the country.

The Corporation has not negotiated for weeks. They came to the table and instead of signing off on negotiated tasks they withdrew some of their offers waiting for Harpers Bill to pass and force the workers back under worse circumstances than they have now......the bill is still in the House and they will be back on Friday to work it out.

Price is right31

I think the strike will be over this Monday... hope so...

Well folks, looks like the workers are being legislated back to work. I will count the day that mail service resumes as the official winning day for this contest. If mail resumes on Monday, it's Monday. If the Senate approves the bill and nothing starts until Tuesday while paperwork is being wrapped up, then Tuesday will be the "winning" day.

Just to give everyone a heads up!


We have no official guesses for Tuesday, June 28th, but we do have two guesses for Monday, June 27th.

I will finalize this as soon as I get back from camping this weekend. I have finally come to a decision and have decided on some nice prizes as well.

Ok... now that I'm back from camping, here is the final verdict:

The "winning date" will not be the date that Canada Post officially announces the end of the strike, but rather, the date on which all mail services through Canada Post will resume as normal.

This is what the contest outlined, and the "winning date" was determined to be Tuesday, June 28th, 2011, a date that nobody had chosen. I decided to discuss the matter with the SCF Hockey Team for further input. Given the guidelines of the contest, and since we didn't want to have no winner, we decided to keep going forward on the calendar to the next closest guess to determine the winner, rather than going backwards on the calendar, and by that, the winner of this contest was determined to be.....


MaysonRaymond0320, with his guess of June 30th.

I will be contacting him in regards to his prize.



Thank you very much for participating everyone!
