Canada Post Corporation (CPC) is working on a new modernized system called Delivery Systems Re-Architecture (DSRA).
Through this new system CPC has currently digitized the RSMC log sheets and Point of Call (POC) maintenance report. This means that information currently captured manually, will now be captured on the Portable Data Terminal (PDT). CPC will be implementing this new process nationally on September 30th, 2019. Log sheets will continue to be provided if requested.
At national consultation, CUPW raised concerns on the ability to verify the accuracy of information captured or inputted into the device. Canada Post provided the following safeguards for verification.
CPC has stated that there will be no compensation provided to RSMC for this training stating that it is not a “significant” amount of time and can be absorbed into their route. CUPW disagrees with CPC’s position and is currently looking at their options.
CPC’s position is that if overtime is incurred due to this training, the letter carriers will be paid accordingly.
Please notify your local if there are any issues that need to be addressed at national consultation as this new process is implemented.
