In 2016 we reached agreement with Canada Post on new dimensions and weights for unaddressed admail (aka neighbourhood mail, householders). The agreement included changes in per-piece payments – increases and decreases – to gain increased time values for the preparation work.

On Monday, December 11, Canada Post made presentations on its financial situation and on parcels. We made our own presentation about Canada Post’s financial reports.

The continued growth in parcel volumes is causing Canada Post to offer more weekend work and more work on statutory holidays. It is important that if you work on a statutory holiday that you are paid correctly.

The Union asked Canada Post at two different consultation meetings this year, for a contingency plan to reduce or eliminate compressed flyers or Neighborhood Mail during the busy peak period. Canada Post provided no plan and will do little to address the Union’s concerns about the overburdening of letter carriers at this busy time of year.

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Just before summer, Canada Post announced the implementation of another initiative – the separation of sorting from delivery through the creation of routers’ assignments. Following this announcement, and after meeting with the employer, the Union put forward some reasonable propositions for the creation of space to accommodate the steep increase in the number of parcels to be delivered. We suggested that CPC purchase the land for sale next to the Laval West depot and expand the facility, use different postal equipment and process the mail in “waves”.

REVISED - Dear Sisters and Brothers: The new drive time values for your route that were negotiated into the current collective agreement will be paid on your July 27, 2017 pay. These new values are retroactive to January 1st, 2017.

The Canada Post Corporation informed the Union today that it would be making changes to its initiative that consists of separating the sortation work from the delivery work on letter carrier routes.
Thursday April 27 2017
In the last round of bargaining with Canada Post Corporation (CPC), our union negotiated the right for carriers to prepare unaddressed admail (aka householders or neighbourhood mail) at the end of the day. In the agreement, as long as the overtime process is respected, supervisors can’t use being on overtime as a reason to deny time for admail preparation. This was to apply to collating admail for all points of call (POC) — including centralized POC — when letter carriers have three or more pieces of admail per POC.

On Friday, March 10th, we received notification from the corporation that they intend to implement a major restructure of delivery opera

Monday January 16 2017
Our National Executive Board has prepared this paper to facilitate a discussion with members – a discussion that will develop collective bargaining demands for the 2017-2018 negotiations. Currently the Urban Postal Operations unit (UPO) and the Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMCs) are under two distinct Collective Agreements (CAs). CUPW will eventually unify these units. Some sections below will lead to demands that either affect one CA or the other (should we not to gain unity in this round), or else create classification-specific language in a unified CA.

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.
