Minister Morneau Must Withdraw Bill C-27 - To everyone’s surprise, Minister of Finance Bill Morneau has tabled a bill to establish target benefit pension plans for private sector employers under federal jurisdiction and Crown Corporations. Postal workers are directly affected, and we strongly oppose this Bill.
Dear Minister: I am writing on behalf of the 50,000 members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers to urge you to abandon Bill C-27, An Act to amend the Pension Benefits Standards Act, 1985, which represents a dangerous and immediate attack on future and current retirees and Defined Benefit (DB) pension plans in the federal private sector and at Crown corporations such as Canada Post.

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.
