Talks continue as parties reach the halfway point in the conciliation process


Negotiators for Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have reached the halfway point in the ongoing 60-day conciliation process.

Canada Post continues to focus on finding the common ground needed to resolve issues and reach new deals that will allow our customers, employees and the company to succeed.

As previously communicated, there is a mandatory 21-day cooling off period if the conciliation process ends without a deal. The earliest a legal work disruption can occur is at day’s end September 25, 2018.

The collective agreement between Canada Post and CUPW-RSMC expired December 31, 2017 but the terms and conditions of the agreement continue to apply, in accordance with the Canada Labour Code.

We will continue to keep you informed of developments through your team leaders and the online Negotiations Hub.
