Today we are meeting with Canada Post and the mediators to identify the key issues for each side that need to be resolved if we are going to achieve negotiated collective agreements. Representing CUPW will be National President Mike Palecek, 1st National Vice-President Jan Simpson, and both CUPW chief negotiators George Floresco and Sylvain Lapointe. CPC will be represented by CEO Deepak Chopra and other senior representatives.
We will also be meeting with the Honourable MaryAnn Mihychuk to discuss our negotiations. As with last week’s meeting with the Government, CUPW and Canada Post will meet with the Minister separately and after there will be a meeting with the Minister and both parties together.
We will provide information on what occurred at these meetings tomorrow. Keep monitoring the CUPW website and your email for the latest updates.
