Corporation Fully Capable of Absorbing One-Time Payment

For Immediate Release

Friday July 20 2018
We have just completed two full days of meetings with Mediator/Arbitrator Maureen Flynn and the CPC Pay Equity Committee (July 17th and 18th). Counsel for both parties also participated.
Thursday July 12 2018
As directed by Arbitrator Flynn, the parties have been meeting to try to resolve several issues. PCI Delivery, Lock Changes and Householders - The parties are meeting on these issues in an effort to determine the implications of Arbitrator Flynn’s decision with respect to the wage gap, the pension and the time values associated with these work processes.
Tuesday June 19 2018
On May 31, 2018 we received the pay equity decision from Arbitrator Flynn. On the same day, Jessica McDonald, Chair of the Board of Directors and Interim President and CEO, issued a statement in which she promised that CPC was “committed to acting “swiftly and diligently” with CUPW to resolve the issues.

ARBITRATION TRIBUNAL - CANADA - PROVINCE OF ONTARIO - Date: May 31, 2018 ADJUDICATOR: MAUREEN FLYNN CANADA POST CORPORATION Hereinafter: “the Corporation” or “CPC” AND CANADIAN UNION OF POSTAL WORKERS - Hereinafter: “the Union” or “CUPW” Collective Agreement: Collective Agreement for Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers between Canada Post Corporation and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers – Expires December 31, 2017 (the “collective agreement”) AWARD OF THE ARBITRATOR (In the matter of a pay equity review process for the Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers)
Wednesday June 6 2018
In a previous round of bargaining, Canada Post Corporation’s Chief Negotiator for the RSMC unit called the RSMCs a ‘competitive advantage,’ referring to the cost savings Canada Post realized from the wage gap between RSMCs and Urban unit letter carriers. Now Canada Post must eat those words.
Monday June 4 2018
In her 176 page decision, Arbitrator Flynn accepted the “derived hourly rate” methodology proposed by CUPW and rejected the point of call approach proposed by Canada Post Corporation. She stated: “the Tribunal comes to the conclusion that the Corporation’s methodology must be rejected. It is not reasonably accurate nor is it reliable. Rather, it is fundamentally flawed and , consequently, produces so-called compensation results that do not correspond to the employees’ respective realities in light of all the evidence that was adduced in this case.”
Friday June 1 2018
Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers Ruled Equal to Letter Carriers in Landmark Pay Equity Case - Ottawa – Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMC) earned a long-awaited victory, as an arbitrator ruled they do work of equal value to urban letter carriers and that there is a wage gap between the two groups. Arbitrator Maureen Flynn also rejected how Canada Post assessed RSMC compensation, accepting instead the methodology presented by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW).
Thursday May 31 2018
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.
Monday May 28 2018
Today the Union was notified by Arbitrator Flynn that her decision on the Pay Equity dispute will be released sometime on Thursday, May 31st. It is expected that the decision will be lengthy and complicated. The Union intends to analyze the conclusions of the decision and its impact on the membership as soon as possible and distribute the results through our various means of communication.

Support Postal Banking - Download and Sign the Petition

Canada needs a postal bank. Thousands of rural towns and villages in our country do not have a bank, but many of them have a post office that could provide financial services. As well, nearly two million Canadians desperately need an alternative to payday lenders. A postal bank could be that alternative. Download and sign the petition urging the Government of Canada to instruct Canada Post to add postal banking, with a mandate for financial inclusion.
