Friday July 31 2009
Stewards’ Action Bulletin (Series 3, Volume 9, Issue 1 • July-August 2009) In 2007, Canada Post announced a $1.9 billion investment to modernize the post office through the purchase of new equipment and machines that will result in major changes to mail sortation and delivery. These changes, the most important since the mechanization of the post office in the 1970s, will transform the work of postal workers for years to come. All job classifications will be affected in the urban operations bargaining unit. Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMC) will also be affected. Canada Post believes it will eventually recover the costs of this massive investment through huge productivity improvements. That increased productivity could eliminate jobs in every community and in every local.

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.
