OTTAWA – As the federal review of the post office prepares to wrap up its consultation phase, postal workers took the Liberals to task for a skewed consultation process and a task force report containing multiple factual errors and omissions. “The situation of our post office is being gravely misrepresented to the public,” Mike Palecek, the national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, told the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates on November 3rd.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has reviewed the 2016 discussion paper of the Task Force for the Canada Post Corporation Review entitled Canada Post in the Digital Age. We believe that the financial projections and the observations on postal banking contained in the 2016 Task Force discussion paper should be disregarded as they are based on errors, omissions, misrepresentations and unsupported speculation.

Dear Mr. Lukiwski: I have attached CUPW’s promised critique of the discussion paper that was produced by the Canada Post Review Task Force. As you will see from this document, the Task Force’s paper misrepresents the financial realities of Canada Post as well as other matters.

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.

Our allies are working with us across the country to put postal services front and centre. Over the past few months, they’ve put out leaflets and petitions, and even gone on a cross-country tour to put pressure on Canada Post and the government. With their help, we’ve been able to gain some of the strongest public support in years on key issues like pay equity, postal banking and pensions.
