In honour of International Women’s Day 2018, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) created a poster, showcasing the diverse women who make up of the fabric of our society and how together, we will fight to bring change and equality for all women. We know this is a tall order as women’s rights continue to be threatened on many fronts. However, it is more important than ever for us to stand‐up and stand together against blatant discrimination and sexism. We cannot sit quietly while society and the justice system repeatedly fail Indigenous women like Tina Fontaine.

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.
