The National Executive Board has agreed to participate in an Appendix “T” pilot project regarding schedule structures in order to deal with the increase in the Amazon Depot Direct Induction volumes (DDI) above the present daily cap. The location of the pilot is in selected depots in the Greater Vancouver area, in Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge and North Burnaby.

We are discussing the possibility of a pilot project, under the Appendix “T” process , to test an alternative 40 hour work week condensed into 4 days to handle increased parcel and packet volumes from Direct to Depot Induction (DDI) in 3 installations in the Pacific Region. The project that is being considered would begin in February 2020 and last for one year. Upon completion of the pilot, under Appendix T either CUPW or Canada Post can elect to discontinue the project. Three installations in the Pacific Region will participate – Maple Ridge, North Burnaby and Port Coquitlam. If you do not work in one of these installations, this pilot project will not affect you.

Delivering Community Power (DeCoPo) - We are at a crossroads. Our land, air and water are already feeling the effects of climate change. Economic inequality and precarious work are on the rise. Layoffs in fossil fuels extraction industries are leading to more economic uncertainty. Scientists tell us that, to prevent climate catastrophe, we must transition completely off fossil fuels in our lifetime. Canada can run entirely on renewable electricity by 2035 and transition to a 100% clean economy by 2050. If that’s what we want, we have to start now.

This afternoon, we received global offers from Canada Post for both the Urban Operations and RSMC bargaining units. Canada Post was clear that these are not to be taken as final offers, but proposals to get discussions moving towards a settlement.

This is a critical stage in our bargaining process. As in the past, we will do everything possible to achieve an agreement without a strike. Over the decades, we’ve seen time and again that when bargaining is tough, the only thing that gets Canada Post Corporation (CPC) moving is a powerful strike mandate – it’s where our bargaining power really comes from. Still, if we have not reached agreements by September 26, 2018, we will have to be ready for some type of job action. In striking down the back-to-work legislation of 2012, Justice Firestone found that our right to strike is protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Therefore, management will have to negotiate. This time, they can’t sit back and wait for back-to-work legislation to impose their rollbacks.

Canada Post created a workplace crisis which has been brewing for some time. Workers are overloaded and disrespected, and despite being treated as objects and machines, we have continued to provide a high-quality service for everyone across the country. But we all have limits. Our work ethic can no longer be a license to take advantage of us. Things must change. Things must improve. The time is now.

Postal workers' unions — the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) and the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA) and more than 600 municipalities(1) and other allies are supporting the set-up of postal banking and making financial services available in every post office. This report recaps the case for postal banking, and shows how clear the path is for its implementation in Canada.

More than ever, we have momentum on our campaigns, and a window of opportunity to translate this momentum in to bargaining support, which may become critical in weeks to come. Summer brings opportunities for Locals to get involved in events and spread our campaign messages: participating in community fairs, movie nights, parades and barbecues are just a few examples of positive and energetic places for actions – and to have a little fun with our neighbours while drumming up support.

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.
