As they fight to defend their defined benefit pension plan, CUPW supports Unifor 594 members, who are locked out of the Co-op refinery in Regina since December 5. The central issue for the workers at the refinery is protecting their defined benefit (DB) pension plan. We fight hard to protect our pension, and we all know how it feels to have it threatened. Co-op made a promise not to switch workers from the DB plan to a defined contributions plan (which puts the risk on the worker instead of the employer), but they’re going back on their word and asking to end the DB plan.

Ottawa – Early this morning, we were informed that union and community members set up picket lines outside the mail processing plants in Hamilton and Kingston in Ontario to protest back to work legislation imposed on postal workers last week and fight for the right to free collective bargaining. In solidarity with postal workers, the protest-line allowed workers in, but did not allow mail out.

Support Postal Banking - Download and Sign the Petition

Canada needs a postal bank. Thousands of rural towns and villages in our country do not have a bank, but many of them have a post office that could provide financial services. 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.
