As you know, these are unique circumstances! We hear a lot about the amazing work being done by CUPW members to ensure that the postal service continues. However, this unprecedented crisis is affecting our social life, as well as our physical, psychological and even economic well-being. CUPW members are frontline workers, and as such, we have a responsibility to take care of each other at work and at home.

(in French only) Bonjour, ici Nancy Beauchamp, directrice nationale de la région du Montréal métropolitain du STTP. J'espère que vous allez bien, et que vos proches aussi vont bien, malgré la période de stress intense que nous traversons. Les travailleurs et travailleuses des postes ont toujours joué un rôle clé dans la livraison des produits de première nécessité et la prestation de services indispensables.

Hello, this is Jan Simpson, CUPW national President. I hope you and your families are staying safe and well. Postal workers have always played a crucial role in delivering the necessities of life to people's homes and providing important services in our communities.
