Canada Post Tentative Agreement 2020

• If no agreement has been reached by 31 January, the Ombudsman would make recommendations for an agreement. If they are not accepted by the parties, a binding arbitration procedure would be established. There is still a long way to go, but this stressful chapter at Canada Post will come to an end. If we move forward, I know there will still be a lot of work to do to repair a lot of relationships – with customers, with Canadians, with unions and especially with employees. Swiss Post is an incredibly resilient institution, but together we must regain the trust of our customers. Together, our service and commitment will be essential if we regain the trust of Canadians. We still have a long way to go to improve our relationship with the Canadian Postal Workers Union in order to build a strong postal service for the future. Last but not only, we are committed to always acting in the best interests of our employees and ensuring that this guides our decisions. You may have heard that PSAC-UPCE and Canada Post have reached a preliminary agreement.

We don`t know the details of this agreement, except that it is a four-year agreement that expires in August 2024. Canada Post talks a lot about improving cooperation. Why won`t he start negotiations with CUPW? Less than three months after the start of negotiations for the renewal of the collective agreement, which expires on August 31, 2020, PSAC-UPCE and Canada Post Corporation have reached a preliminary PSAC-UPCE agreement and the Canada Post Corporation has reached an agreement despite the COVID-19 pandemic. PSAC members across the basic public service and in authorities are still without contracts, while they continue to provide important, quality and essential services to Canadians in these difficult times. If an agreement has been possible at Canada Post, it is possible to do the same with the Board of Directors. We call on the Board Secretariat to come back to the table and negotiate a fair deal for workers and all Canadians. If we look at 2019, I think of my first year in Canada post. I realize that this great company has a strong future serving Canadians. But to succeed, we need to find new ways to work together, listen to each other, and be open to new solutions. I am committed to finding that way forward. As the CUPW collective agreement process now moves to arbitration, there is still much to be done from January on or after January to redefine our common future. .
