On January 24th we received confirmation from Arbitrator Elizabeth McPherson regarding the issues in dispute that will be argued at Arbitration.
Arbitrator McPherson was appointed by the Government on December 10th, 2018 to arbitrate the RSMC and Urban Collective Agreements as a result of the Back to Work Legislation that was imposed on November 26th, 2018.
On January 16th and 17th, 2019 the Union and Canada Post put forward what matters each party believed were still in dispute. As a result the Arbitrator has now made her decision as to what will be argued.
Canada Post was ordered to provide their position, in writing, to the Union on each matter in dispute by February 6th, 2019, as to date they have not revealed their actual position on the matters.
