Our union must be an active and strong force in shaping the direction of the postal service and the political context in which we work. This publication contains an overview of the work we need to do on important issues like the attack on the Rand formula, Postal Transformation, the Canadian Postal Service Charter, service expansion and reduction at Canada Post and the federal election. These inter-related issues affect our jobs, our communities and the public postal service. We need to work toward a future where our rights are respected, workers are treated with dignity and respect, and public services are valued and strengthened. We encourage every member to get involved in these campaigns.

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.
