Like most sensible people, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) sees a 1.8% profit margin on revenues at Canada Post as great news: modestly better than break-even, with some extra cash to reinvest in the service – isn’t that exactly how we want a crown corporation to perform? Of course, it’s on brand for the Motley Fool to throw out conventional wisdom and make an unorthodox proposal to butcher and privatize the Canada Post Group of companies. The thing is, it’s far-fetched and based on little understanding of how the postal system works, therefore no constructive ideas about improving it.

It's been a wild ride for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers over the past couple of years. After we mobilized with the public to beat back the Harper Conservatives' planned demolition of door-to-door delivery, our union then faced a tough round of negotiations with the Conservative-appointed managers of Canada Post.

Huge turnouts at strike votes: we’re ready to take on the boss! I’m in Vancouver doing workfloor meetings and strike vote meetings, having just returned from a week in Calgary, where great numbers of postal workers turned out to vote against management’s rollbacks. I’m hearing similar reports of massive participation in our strike votes from across the country. Go CUPW go!

Over the past week, we’ve watched in horror as wildfires ripped through the Fort McMurray area. Our immediate thoughts are with those who have lost everything and those who are unsure if they have anything to go back to.

This week, our national union has done several different things for International Women’s Day.

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.
