CUPW-Urban files Notice to Bargain


Today, Canada Post received a Notice to Bargain from the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, representing Urban employees (CUPW-Urban).

The collective agreement for CUPW-Urban is due to expire on January 31, 2018.

A Notice to Bargain is the routine, initial stage of a labour negotiations process. Once filed, talks must begin within 20 days.

While the parties will meet before Christmas, we don’t expect negotiations to begin in earnest until the New Year. Over the coming weeks, the parties will identify issues to be addressed through negotiations, which typically last months.

Upon expiry, the current collective agreement will continue to apply in accordance with the Canada Labour Code.

We will keep you informed of key developments through your team leaders and here on the Negotiations Hub.
