Postal Worker Job Action Could Begin Monday
CUPW Served Notice to Canada Post Today
Postal workers could begin job action as of Monday morning, if a deal isn’t reached soon.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers gave notice today that job action would begin as of Monday, if an agreement cannot be struck surrounding job security, an end to forced overtime, along with better health and safety measures.
“Our members gave us a clear mandate to take job action if Canada Post refused to address our major issues – health and safety, gender equality and preserving full-time, middle class jobs,” says Mike Palecek, CUPW National President. “Our goal is still negotiated settlements with no postal disruption. This week is Canada Post’s chance to make that happen.”
If it comes to job action, rotating strikes would begin as of 12:01 Monday mornings, with locations yet to be determined.
