Negotiations Update
  Canada Post tables offers designed to avoid a work disruption

Dear Canada Post customer,

Canada Post recently tabled offers for the separate negotiations under way with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW-Urban and CUPW-RSMC), which represent our delivery agents and plant employees.

We understand the impact that a work disruption would have on you and your customers and are therefore doing everything possible to reach a negotiated settlement quickly. We are not there yet, which means a work disruption remains a possibility at the end of this month. There is still time to reach a deal and we remain at the negotiating table.

Details on Canada Post’s offer
As we have said throughout negotiations, our goal is to reach negotiated agreements that are fair for our employees while also reflecting the changing nature of our business and the needs of our customers.

Our offers protect the things that are most important to employees, around their pension plan and job security, while making some necessary changes. One of the main changes would be a new offer for new employees, which would include a defined contribution pension.

The offers would also give the company the flexibility it needs to continue to serve its customers and grow. For example, with Canadians shopping online 24/7, the offer would allow us to establish temporary and part-time jobs to better enable us to deliver parcels on weekends and evenings. This would not only provide greater flexibility, especially during peak times, but also help us manage costs and keep our prices competitive. Our current approach of providing this service while paying double-time is not financially sustainable. In addition, we know many of our customers want more flexible size specifications for Neighbourhood Mail. The offer would provide more options for marketers.

Timelines unchanged
As we have previously stated, there can be no legal work disruption until July 2, 2016. With the tabling of offers, that remains unchanged. In the event of a full disruption, Canada Post will not operate, deliver or accept new items. We will keep you updated on our progress.

Thank you for your business and your patience.
