An important part of what the CUPW Child Care Fund does is to undertake research to better understand issues related to child care and how they affect our members. We use that research to develop information; tools and resources to better support members with their child care needs.
As set out under Appendix “L” of the collective agreement the Fund can support research activities and the development of public information and various resource tools, but it must reach postal workers. This sometimes means building targeted outreach activities into the process. All research activities must increase awareness of the needs of postal workers and have a parent focus.
