The Canadian Union of Postal Workers will meet interim President and CEO of Canada Post, Jessica McDonald, and the heads of all unions at Canada Post, on July 23rd to discuss the ongoing problem of bullying, harassment and intimidation of workers.
Today, we met with Minister Carla Qualtrough, Member of Parliament Steven MacKinnon and staff from the Minister’s office to discuss the ongoing problem of bullying, harassment and intimidation of workers at Canada Post. The bully-bosses campaign kicked off earlier this year when Brother Tyler Oswald, a postal worker from Winnipeg, asked the Prime Minister a question about bullying at Canada Post during a town hall meeting. Following this meeting, the union was flooded with complaints about abuse on our work floors. Tyler was there today to communicate his experiences directly to the Minister. We brought with us binder upon binder of complaints the union has received. The sheer volume of complaints tells its own story.

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.
