OTTAWA- A paper presented by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers researchers today shows conclusively how Canada Post’s cutbacks are creating expensive problems, including costs for municipal residents and health care.
The paper, “The Implications of Converting Home Mail Delivery to Community Mailboxes: The Canadian Experience,” was prepared for the 23nd Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics, held this week.
“The truth is that Canada Post’s cuts are costing Canadians plenty,” said Mike Palecek, National President of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW).
Among the issues covered by the research paper are:
