OTTAWA - The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) call on the Ontario government to strengthen Bill 148, The Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act. Ontario members of CUPW sent a letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne raising concerns on amendments introduced after the tabling of the bill.
We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Brother Bob White. Bob was a passionate defender of the working class throughout his life. CUPW owes him a debt of gratitude for the role he played, as head of the Canadian Labour Congress, in helping our union win employee status and a collective agreement for over 6000 Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers. We shall forever be grateful for his assistance and support.
Dear Mr. Yangi, On behalf of the 50,000 members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers I wish to extend our support, compassion and recognition of the tragic loss of members for the Muslim community and the citizens of Quebec City at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec.
Dear Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, In a case of great urgency, I am appealing that you recommend to President Obama that he grant clemency and/or commutation of sentence to Leonard Peltier, a Native American indigenous prisoner who has served more than 40 years in maximum-security prisons, falsely extradited from Canada, and wrongly convicted in the United States. The late Hon. Warren Allmand, M.C., Q.C., in his distinguished career as a Liberal Member of Parliament, had spent four decades in examining all the facts and circumstances of Mr. Peltier’s extradition and his case of wrongful imprisonment.
Please send your letter as soon as possible to President Obama and Prime Minister Trudeau. There are only a few days left. Show your solidarity!
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.
