In honour of International Women’s Day on March 8th, 2019, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) created a poster celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Winnipeg General Strike, commemorating all the women who helped Canada’s labour movement come into its own in the early 20th century, and those who continue to fight today.

CUPW condemns the Government of Canada’s decision to recognize Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the legitimate president of Venezuela, over the elected president Nicolas Maduro. It is deeply disturbing that the Canadian government has chosen to support this US-backed coup, which is in direct violation of international law. By following the US agenda in Venezuela, Canada has aligned itself with the right-wing regimes of the Lima Group and Donald Trump, who resemble past US governments who intervened and disrupted democratically elected governments in the Americas and elsewhere in the world. This is unacceptable.

(REDISTRIBUTED ON FEBRUARY 1, 2019) This year some regions were hit unexpectedly early, and more periods of extreme cold weather will surely come.

Postal workers put up with a lot. We face harassment, bullying and overwork all too frequently. Some of us were expected to deliver racist, anti-Semitic, and sexist material in a publication called Your Ward News, but workers stood up and put a stop to it.

The first two days of hearings, in front of Arbitrator MacPherson, are now complete.

On October 5, 2016, the House of Commons declared the month of January as Tamil Heritage month, by unanimous motion. From a population of fewer than 150 Tamils in 1983, it has become one of the largest communities within the Greater Toronto Area. Our country’s Tamil population is thought to constitute the largest Sri Lankan diaspora in the world.

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.
