We received the pay equity arbitration award from Arbitrator Flynn. The award is lengthy and complex and was written only in English. It is currently being translated by CUPW. At this time, we can confirm that the arbitrator has ruled that RSMCs perform work of equal value to that of letter carriers. She has also ruled that a wage gap exists between RSMCs and letter carriers.

Ableism is a practice of superiority, alongside racism, sexism or homophobia – a habit of mind that says some human beings are more valuable than others. It divides us into winners and losers. Barriers are imposed on those who are devalued by ableism. This kind of mentality benefits the authorities and corporations that profit off our work and our in-fighting. It gets in the way of creating a more just and equitable society.

Canada Post’s 2017 Annual Report came out yesterday, and it confirms the position that we’ve taken for many years now: there is no financial crisis at Canada Post, there’s plenty of room for growth yet, and expansion and innovation mark the way to long-term viability for the service.

Today, we met with Minister Carla Qualtrough, Member of Parliament Steven MacKinnon and staff from the Minister’s office to discuss the ongoing problem of bullying, harassment and intimidation of workers at Canada Post. The bully-bosses campaign kicked off earlier this year when Brother Tyler Oswald, a postal worker from Winnipeg, asked the Prime Minister a question about bullying at Canada Post during a town hall meeting. Following this meeting, the union was flooded with complaints about abuse on our work floors. Tyler was there today to communicate his experiences directly to the Minister. We brought with us binder upon binder of complaints the union has received. The sheer volume of complaints tells its own story.

The National Day of Mourning, held annually on April 28, is dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness on the job. This annual event was initiated by the labour movement 34 years ago to increase awareness of on-the-job injuries and fatal workplace accidents. This day of remembrance was officially recognized by the federal government in 1991, more than eight years after it was launched by the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) in 1985.
