The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) gave notices Tuesday, Oct. 16 to Canada Post that job action will begin next week if agreements cannot be reached for the Urban Postal Operations and Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMC) bargaining units. If job action is necessary, rotating strikes will begin at 12:01 a.m., Monday, Oct. 22. CUPW said locations have yet to be determined.
“Our members gave us a clear mandate to take job action if Canada Post refused to address our major issues – health and safety, gender equality and preserving full-time, middle class jobs,” said Mike Palecek, CUPW National President. “Our goal is still negotiated settlements with no postal disruption. This week is Canada Post’s chance to make that happen.”
In a release, CUPW said key demands for postal workers during this round of bargaining are job security, an end to forced overtime and overburdening, better health and safety measures, service expansion and equality for RSMCs.
