Canada Post and the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA) are pleased to have reached a settlement to resolve a longstanding pay equity dispute.

The agreement pertains to pay rates for CPAA-represented employees from September 1992 to March 1997. The parties reached a settlement with the assistance of an independent mediator who has experience in pay equity disputes. The settlement requires the approval of the Canadian Human Rights Commission before it can be finalized and implemented.

A joint committee consisting of representatives from both Canada Post and CPAA will move quickly to implement the settlement, pending approval from the Canadian Human Rights Commission. More information and details will follow shortly, including instructions for eligible current and former employees about how to apply for payment.
