Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers on August 30 reached what the organizations describe as tentative short-term agreements – for both the urban and RSMC bargaining units – with the help of a Federally appointed mediator.
The new agreements, must be ratified by Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) members, are for a period of two years instead of the typical four-year contracts that have been negotiated in the past. The tentative collective agreements have been recommended by the majority of CUPW’s National Executive Board. Member voting will occur over a period of five or six weeks.
CUPW noted over the next 13 months that it plans to work on a third-party pay-equity report regarding RSMCs, which are estimated to make 30 percent less than their urban counterparts for doing work of equal value.
The agreements avert a work disruption, noted Canada Post, as businesses head into the holiday shipping season. Canada Post also noted this 2-year approach provides more time for thoughtful discussion and analysis on how to best address significant challenges facing the crown corporation – primarily declining mail volumes and a growing pension obligation.
