Fairly early on in this process, the parties were able to negotiate and sign language giving the Union access to the information that Canada Post uses to restructure letter carrier and RSMC routes. To many of you this may not appear to be related to overburdening, but it is one of the keys that will allow us to fully investigate how the data is used to restructure our routes.
What Did We Get Access To?
We have achieved better access to CPC data and software since 2008 when the GeoRoute software was introduced. The Georoute software is used to structure all Urban routes and many RSMC routes, especially in suburban areas. GeoRoute has always been a big concern because everything is hidden in the background and we had no specific information about how Georoute was manipulating data. Now we have the capability to look into this software and see how it uses this data.
