We are continuing to meet with Canada Post to attempt to resolve the outstanding issues. We are reviewing those that are close to being resolved and the major ones that must be addressed.
During the next week, we are determined to make substantial progress on some of our major demands. We must deal with Group 1 staffing, RSMC hours of work and pay for all hours worked, one bundle delivery for letter carriers and wages for Groups 3 & 4. These are just a few of the important issues that we must resolve.
Today we met with CPC and reviewed the status of the negotiations. We agreed on the issues that were resolved and discussed a plan to resolve issues that are close to being settled. We also discussed our plan for the coming week and each side put forward their key issues for discussions.
The negotiating committee, the NEB and our support staff are working long hours as we strive to achieve negotiated collective agreements. Your solidarity and support are what helps keep us going. Continue sending messages and posting pictures of your activities. Keep reminding our employer that we have always wanted, and continue to want, to negotiate good collective agreements for all postal workers. We are determined and will keep fighting for the agreements that we deserve.
