We all know the chant. Unfortunately, it is not that easy to stop Manulife from intruding on our medical affairs. Depending on the nature of an employee’s illness or injury, employers do have legitimate rights in terms of the disclosure of medical information. But employees also have a right to privacy.1 As an agent of Canada Post, hired to “manage” our injuries and illnesses, Manulife has no more right than Canada Post does to harass us. Medical status is best determined by a physician rather than someone without any first-hand medical knowledge. But Canada Post follows the recommendations of Manulife rather than the advice of doctors. That is why members should always contact the Union to help them with what is often referred to as the “Manulife nightmare.”

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.
