“We are calling on the federal government to allow for a fair process by encouraging workers and the employer to come to an agreement that works for everyone. This back-to-work legislation is a clear violation of workers’ Charter rights. CUPW successfully fought to have this right explicitly upheld by the Supreme Court.” — Hassan Yussuff, CLC President
Door-to-door protected for millions, but fight to reverse the cuts carries on.
“We are asking management to give us a chance, to give the public review a chance, to keep sitting down with us at the bargaining table, and give the workers a chance to get a fair deal." — Mike Palecek, CUPW national president
"We support the call for postal banking in communities so people can receive the assistance they need in ways that will help them get out of financial difficulty, not put them further under." — James Clancy, NUPGE National President
“We need to stop the cuts before more jobs are lost, before more damage is done to property and before more people lose this service." — Mike Palecek, CUPW National President
“People are telling us they value their public postal service and they want to keep it.” — Mike Palecek, CUPW National President
“Canada Post needs to listen to the community." — CUPW National President Mike Palecek.
“To change these cuts, we need to change this government. The Harper government is driving the postal train wreck and it needs to stop before more people lose their services.” — Mike Palecek, CUPW National President
