THE NEXT STEPS
The negotiating committee will continue to gather evidence and prepare files on our demands in preparation for the first meetings with Canada Post.
The Union expects to serve notice to bargain for both bargaining units soon. Negotiations meetings should start shortly.
This round of negotiations will be interesting and unpredictable, partly because of many outside factors; the changes in Canada Post management, the new Minister responsible for Canada Post and the recommendations from the review of Canada Post. To be successful during this round, the negotiating committee will need the support of each and every one of you.
Support your negotiations! Our future depends on it.
