Today, the bargaining teams for Canada Post and the Public Service Alliance of Canada/Union of Postal Communications Employees (PSAC/UPCE) signed a new four-year collective agreement that will be in effect from September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2020.
As communicated in February, the new collective agreement includes a wage increase in every year and a single rate of pay for volume counters. Wage increases for Years 1 and 2 of the agreement will be paid retroactively and appear on the May 17, 2018 pay statement.
The new agreement will have an immediate impact on members who hold an FI designation, and those expecting to retire on or after June 26. 2018. The new agreement preserves the job security language in Article 28, and addresses challenges with surplus status.
Highlights are summarized in this mailer, which will be mailed to the homes of all PSAC/UPCE-represented employees. Copies of the full collective agreement will also be printed and distributed to all PSAC/UPCE-represented employees and their team leaders, and posted on Intrapost.
