RSMC Unit: NEB Minority Report

Thursday October 20 2016
When Canada Post first presented its proposals to us in January, there was nothing but rollback after rollback and attacks on our pension plan. In the 8 months that followed, we pushed back hard and said that we would not accept rollbacks. We pushed for Canada Post to negotiate based on our demands.

Dear Minister Foote: I am writing further to my July 29, 2016 letter to request a response and raise additional concerns about the Canada Post Review.

Dear Mr, Lukiwski: I am writing further to my July 29, 2016 letter to raise an additional concern about the Standing Committee’s consultations on Canada Post. As part of its consultations, the Committee is conducting an online survey that is largely based on options outlined in the discussion paper produced by the Canada Post Review Task Force. CUPW believes the Task Force’s discussion paper is very flawed and is disappointed that the Committee’s survey, like the paper, focuses on cuts and rate hikes.

How to get in touch with the Child Care Fund or one of our projects

A factsheet on the elements of high quality child care. It's a fact. Research shows that high quality child care plays a positive and long-lasting role in the social and intellectual development of children, no matter what their social, cultural and economic background. Lack of access to high quality child care can cause high stress for working parents: worry about their children's well being while at work, and conflicts with employers and co-workers due to lateness or absences. Lack of high quality child care also keeps women from entering and participating fully in the paid labour force.

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.
