As you may be aware, Canada Post has been threatening to lock out its workers (represented by CUPW).
While negotiations continue and a lock-out (or strike) has been put off for a thirty-day “cooling off” period, postal workers could be forced out in several weeks.
Predictably, a lock-out will affect mailing times and delivery (including delivery of benefits cheques from our benefits company). Accordingly, members may want to consider submitting benefits claims as soon as possible to try to avoid delays.
Finally, please keep up-to-date on the Canada Post contract negotiations and the important issues on the table by visiting the CUPW website at http://www.cupw.ca/.
Thanks very much,
Your CUPE 3906 Executive Committee
