Your negotiating committee and National Executive Board are in Ottawa working hard to negotiate new collective agreements.
There is a possibility that a 72-hour strike or lockout notice may be issued, but your negotiating committee is determined to achieve good, negotiated collective agreements without any industrial action. The National Executive Board is prepared to take any steps necessary to get what we deserve.
Your negotiating committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your great solidarity activities that have been ongoing during the last few weeks. The pictures and messages of support are a great morale booster as we work hard to achieve your demands. Please continue with the actions and keep us informed of what you are doing.
This weekend is the time for Canada Post to work with us to address the many demands that we have to improve our health and safety, working conditions, wages, benefits and staffing. On Tuesday morning, we want to be able to report that it was a successful Thanksgiving weekend at the bargaining table.
