Brothers & Sisters, The holiday season is upon us once again. This is the busiest time of the year in terms of workload, as parcel and Admail volumes are at their highest in the weeks leading up to the holidays. While your employer alleges it takes your health and safety seriously, you are the one who can best protect yourself from harm. You have the right to refuse to perform dangerous work! At times, we are faced with having to decide between serving our customers well and protecting our physical and mental well-being and safety.

But we all have limits. Our work ethic can no longer be a license to take advantage of us. Things must change. Things must improve. The time is now.

However, the arbitrator specified that the application of provisions relied upon to support a grievance must not result in any absurd, inequitable or unreasonable situation, or render unlawful any act committed legally at the time when the collective agreement was no longer in effect.

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.
