Please consider volunteering to canvass in key ridings

The Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) has asked labour leaders and union members to volunteer for New Democratic Party (NDP) canvasses in a number of ridings.

To date, the NDP is the only major political party to promise to restore home mail delivery if elected. As a result, CUPW is joining with the CLC to urge you to consider volunteering to canvass with labour leaders. A list of canvass dates, locations, leaders and ridings follow.

Please note that canvassing must be done on your own time. The Canada Elections Act makes it clear that unions cannot make financial contributions to political parties and candidates. This means paying members, representatives or staff to work on election canvassing is forbidden. However, we can volunteer to participate in campaigns by canvassing or taking other actions.
