Still ‘a Long Way to Go’ in Canada Post Contract Dispute

Canadian Union of Postal Workers Reject Offer From CanPost 2018-10-10

Dear Valued Customer,

The union representing 50,000 employees at Canada Post panned the latest contract offers from the corporation last Thursday, calling them “disappointing” and keeping alive the threat of a work stoppage as the busy holiday online shopping season approaches.
 
Two separate offers for rural and urban carriers included “very small movements” toward resolving some key issues, said the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.
 
The possibility of a work stoppage has hovered over Canada Post since Sept. 26, after postal workers voted overwhelmingly in late summer in support of a potential walkout to back their contract demands.
 
But that initial deadline passed without any job action being launched, with CUPW saying it would stay at the bargaining table so long as there was progress in the talks.
 
Job action could include a full or partial walkout, or a lockout, after a 72-hour notice period.
 
The threat of a work stoppage over the holidays has forced companies that rely on Canada Post for parcel deliveries to make alternative plans to ensure their customers receive orders. However, it may be difficult to fill all of the service gaps in the event of a shutdown.
