Dear Prime Minister: I am writing to raise concerns about the government’s failure to live up to its commitment to consider all possibilities for Canada Post’s future.
Monday November 21 2016
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.

Dear Minister Foote: I have attached our 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. It uses very selective information and omits important developments that will dramatically impact the future of our public postal service. The paper also gets some basic facts wrong.

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. It uses very selective information and omits important developments that will dramatically impact the future of our public postal service. The paper also gets some basic facts wrong.

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. As you may recall, you promised that all options, other than privatization, would be considered during your review of our public post office. Unfortunately, this is not happening.

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.
Friday July 29 2016
Dear Mr, Lukiwski: I understand that the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates will hold e-consultations and public hearings in various locations in connection with the Canada Post Review. I also understand it has decided not to accept briefs or submissions, which is normal practice for committees. CUPW would like to request that the Committee reconsider its decision and allow Canadians to make submissions. We believe this would open up the consultations to people who will not be able to participate in the Committee’s main vehicle for input, the online survey. Close to 20% of Canadians do not have access to the Internet (Source: Statistics Canada, 2012).

Thursday July 14 2016
Dear Minister Foote: It is our understanding that the Clerk of the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates has asked committee members for witness suggestions for the public consultations being held this fall in connection with the Canada Post Review. It appears that they were asked on July 13th to send suggestions by July 19th. This is not a reasonable amount of time. Also, it is not clear whether anyone other than committee members will be allowed to make witness suggestions.

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.
