On December 11, 2013, Canada Post announced large rate hikes and sweeping changes to public postal service, including a decision to take away home mail delivery and force 5 million households to use community mailboxes (CMBs).

A year later, CUPW members in locations that have lost delivery are going door-to-door to tell affected residents that the union intends to:

  • Preserve home mail delivery for those who have it.
  • Restore home mail delivery for those who have lost it.
  • Expand home mail delivery in areas that already have community mailboxes, as Canada Post's finances allow. CUPW is distributing a flyer with the above messages.

The flyer also encourages affected households to let the CUPW know what their complaints are so that the union can help them raise their issues with Canada Post and the federal government. It also reminds people that the federal Conservatives support the home delivery cuts and that there is a federal election coming. CUPW will be asking opposition parties to restore home mail delivery in the upcoming election.

In solidarity,
