Earlier today, Canada Post tabled an offer to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW-Urban).
The offer builds on an earlier one presented on September 7, 2018. It provides wage increases in every year of the proposed agreement, improved benefits and makes no changes to the pension.
The offer also addresses many of the workload issues that employees face in handling more and more parcels every year. It adds more full-time positions in mail processing, greater opportunity for temporary and part-time employees, and improvements for the maintenance group.
In a letter to all CUPW-represented employees, the Chair of the Board of Directors and Interim President and CEO Jessica McDonald explains how we address concerns in both the Urban and RSMC groups and confirms the company’s commitment to work with CUPW to grow and improve the business.
While the conciliation process has concluded, talks are ongoing with the help of a mediator, and Canada Post continues to work toward a negotiated settlement.
The collective agreement between Canada Post and CUPW-Urban expired January 31, 2018 but the terms and conditions continue to apply for now.
We will continue to keep you informed of key developments through your team leaders and the Negotiations Hub.
Read here the detailed summary of the offer tabled with the Union.
