Dear Sisters and Brothers, Just before summer, Canada Post announced the implementation of another initiative – the separation of sorting from delivery through the creation of routers’ assignments. Following this announcement, and after meeting with the employer, the Union put forward some reasonable propositions for the creation of space to accommodate the steep increase in the number of parcels to be delivered. We suggested that CPC purchase the land for sale next to the Laval West depot and expand the facility, use different postal equipment and process the mail in “waves”.

Last year’s negotiations for both Urban and RSMC members were settled with two short-term collective agreements, and very little progress. While we succeeded in temporarily halting the austerity-drive, all of our most substantial issues remain unresolved. Now with the government review of Canada Post finished, and the Liberals still dragging their feet on decisions, we are getting ready to head back to the bargaining table. Nobody should expect an easy round of bargaining.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is one of a very few unions in North America to negotiate a Child Care Fund to support members with their child care needs. In 1997 CUPW commissioned SpeciaLink (a research and resource agency specializing in child care issues involving children with special needs) to examine the impact on members’ work and family lives when parenting a child with special needs. CUPW wanted to find out if the supports provided through the Child Care Fund were helpful to CUPW families and their children with special needs.

Dear Sisters and Brothers: Once again, forest fires have hit Western Canada and threaten nearby communities. They also affect air quality, which will make physical work even more difficult in the weeks ahead for our members at Canada Post and Dynamex. For now, mail delivery has been suspended by Canada Post in nearly twenty municipalities in the province. Neighbouring towns will also be dealing, if they are not already, with poor air quality, which could deteriorate to the point where physical work outside becomes very difficult.

Justin Trudeau certainly did not run on a military-strength platform. Nowhere on the campaign trail did Liberals talk about increasing military spending or using “hard power” abroad. The recent speech of Chrystia Freeland, alongside the announced 70% increase in military spending should ring alarm bells.
