It’s time to call for applications from all members who are interested in serving on the negotiating committees for our two biggest bargaining units – Urban Postal Operations (UPO) and Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMC).
Our current RSMC collective agreement expires on December 31, 2017. Preparations for negotiations are underway. Members will propose demands at membership meetings, and upcoming regional councils will discuss and forward the demands they recommend. The National Executive Board (NEB) expects to put together our program of demands in the summer for the membership to ratify.
Meanwhile, we will assemble the committee. As set out in Article 6.03 the NEB will determine the composition of the RSMC negotiating committee.
It’s one of the most important jobs at the core of our Union’s work; please consider it carefully.
Please fill out the form and send it to:
Canadian Union of Postal Workers
377 Bank Street
Ottawa, ON K2P 1Y3
The deadline for applications is April 3rd, 2017.
