After many attempts to resolve the many outstanding issues that were necessary to achieve negotiated collective agreements, the parties remain far apart. The extended mandate of the mediator Mr. Morton Mitchnick has now expired.
In spite of the continued assistance of the mediator, Canada Post failed to address your key demands on health and safety, staffing, over-burdening, job security, a reduction in precarious employment, fair wages for all and a better work-life balance.
The members of CUPW have very long memories. We will not forget how you manipulated the facts to try and force us to accept less than we deserve. We did not accept collective agreements that would not improve our health and safety or other key issues. We will hold our heads high and continue our fight to improve our working conditions, work-life balance and our wages and benefits.
