Collage of CUPW members including letter carrier, rural and suburban mail carrier, processing plant worker, technical services and trades, and private sector workers.

Many CUPW members work for Canada Post as letter carriers, rural and suburban mail carriers, postal clerks, mail handlers and dispatchers, technicians, mechanics and electricians.

But CUPW doesn’t just represent postal workers. We also represent cleaners, couriers, drivers, vehicle mechanics, warehouse workers, printers, emergency medical dispatchers and other workers in the private sector.

CUPW is a democratic union. Our members elect all representatives, set the priorities for bargaining, and have the final say on contract demands and settlements. We are proud of our history and the achievements of our members.
