Following a National Executive Board decision, members of the rural unit will be delivering a Canadian Tire neighbourhood mail item starting on November 12, 2019.
Without a memorandum of agreement, the Canada Post Corporation has the right under the RSMC collective agreement to demand that delivery take place in a single day and be compensated at 1.5 cents per item.
We have reached an agreement that allows members to choose between one-day or two-day delivery.
Neighbourhood mail is an important source of revenue for the Corporation and our members. However, this additional workload can cause various problems for our members. The employer will have to consult with the regional and local levels, as well as Local Joint Health and Safety Committees (LJHSC) or the Health and Safety Representative (HSR) at the latest one week prior to the start of delivery.
If the employer fails to respect the memorandum of agreement throughout the entire rural unit, all RSMCs will receive an additional two (2) cents per item covered by this agreement.
Attached is a copy of the memorandum of agreement.
