As part of our ongoing campaign to keep our public postal service a strong dynamic entity in our communities, CUPW is renewing the Campaign Coordinators assigned to our Save Canada Post campaign. The current coordinators have dedicated a lot of energy and hours to our fight and this posting is not a reflection on their past efforts. Just as we renew our elected representatives at each convention we are renewing those chosen to carry on the work on behalf of our membership.

In addition to working in our communities to preserve and expand postal services, from now until the end of October the Union will be working with thousands of  others to change the federal government. The Coordinators are an integral part of the union’s plan for success.

 

Coordinators will:

Work with locals, regions, community groups and the public to:

  • Stop and dismantle the Corporation/Government’s Five Point Plan.
  • Build support with community allies and assist locals in organizing events and meetings to support our campaign.
  • Ensure MPs that do not speak out publicly against the Five Point Plan are not returned to Parliament following the next election.
  • Build support for alternatives to cuts, such as postal banking.
  • Work with CUPW’s Communications and Research department.
  • Participate in the planning and implementation of our Union’s program.
  • Provide written reports to the 3rd National Vice President on activities.
  • Support the labour movement’s campaign to protect and enhance workers’ rights.

 

Qualifications:

  • Ability to work well on your own and with others.
  • Ability to multi-task, set priorities and meet deadlines.
  • Strong organizational skills.
  • Experience with community organizing is an asset.
  • Experience and commitment working with the labour or social change movements.
  • All applications will be considered from Members-In-Good-Standing. Please indicate proficiency in French, English and other languages.
  • Ability to work in Microsoft Word software and other computer programs.

 

Training in campaign and community organizing will be provided.

Co-ordinators will work under the direction of the 3rd National Vice-President
