The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is the largest bargaining unit at Canada Post and represents over 61,000 proud members who care about the future of the Corporation.
CUPW has developed a bold and inspiring vision for the future of the public postal service, making it a source of inspiration, pride, and confidence for everyone. Our Delivering Community Power campaign (1) fits perfectly into a just, green, and inclusive post-COVID recovery.
In addition to our vision to expand Canada Post’s services, increasing federal visibility and providing proximity services across its network of more than 6,100 post offices, an important part of our plan aims to position Canada Post as a corporate leader and example for achieving the goals set out in Bill C-12.
The postal service in Canada, by the nature of its mandate, operates the largest fleet of polluting vehicles, second only to the Canadian Armed Forces. In fact, Canada Post owns more than 13,000 vehicles, in addition to 7,000 vehicles owned by rural and suburban letter carriers (RSMCs).
Canada Post plays a pivotal role to lead the charge against greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and has the potential to become a symbol of innovation.
