We represent TForce Final Mile couriers and other employees in Ottawa, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Red Deer, Kelowna, Victoria, Prince George, Kamloops and Nanaimo. CUPW served notice to bargain for all these units in December 2017. It’s been a rough round of bargaining at times. As you’ve seen in previous updates, we are now concluding successful negotiations in one unit after another
While the Urban Postal Operations and RSMC units negotiate for new collective agreements, we have some sisters and brothers who are trying to negotiate a first collective agreement or make gains in the same struggle, in the same industry.
We’re trying to build momentum in CUPW negotiations with TForce Final Mile (fka Dynamex). Our original intent was to bring TForce to the bargaining table to negotiate with all the bargaining units as one, with a single set of demands on our side. This was to maximize our bargaining power and show the employer that the union’s issues in one location matter to members in all locations.
In December, we issued a bulletin introducing the negotiators for the TForce Final Mile (f.k.a. Dynamex) bargaining units.
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.
