Pickets went up at 7 a.m. Thursday at the Summerland post office as part of the rotating 24-hour strikes involving Canada Post employees.
There will be no mail or parcel delivery in Summerland, Penticton, Vernon.
“This is our turn at the rotating strike,” said Valeta Heiden, president of Vernon Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) Local 848, which serves about 80 members.
About 10 members were walking the line in the brisk, sunny weather Thursday at the Summerland facility.
Heiden said eight other B.C. locals were behind picket lines Thursday: Coldstream, Armstrong, Falkland, Lumby, Kamloops, Williams Lake, Quesnel and Cranbrook.
Workers anticipate being back on the job Friday at 7 a.m.
