We’ve been participating in the arbitration process set down by Bill C-89, the back-to-work legislation that passed last November. Although we believe the law is unconstitutional and violates our charter rights, we will abide by it while we challenge it in the courts. That’s why you’re currently working under the terms of the expired contracts, and that’s why we are in this arbitration process.
Tuesday April 16 2019
We began this hearing with the continued testimony of Geoff Bickerton on the history of RSMC negotiations. The hearing continued with committee member, Cathy Kennedy testifying about the pay equity process and Arbitrator Maureen Flynn’s decisions on pay equity.

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.
