During the last round of bargaining, CUPW and the employer agreed in principle to test flexible dynamic routing delivery models and to develop a pilot project to address the overburdening associated with the evaluation of relay boxes and “park and loop” delivery. Arbitrator MacPherson also determined that a study and an update of the percentage of coverage must be conducted under Appendix 1 (New).

We now need union representatives to sit on the national working groups (section 8 (b) of Appendix “AA”). The mandate of these working groups is to carry out work related to projects approved by the Appendix “AA” National Committee (section 5 of Appendix “AA”).

The ideal candidate would be:

  • a member in good standing of CUPW;
  • experienced in participating in consultations with the employer;
  • familiar with the LCRMS, the MSCWSS, time values, and the Corporate Manual System (CMS);
  • familiar with health and safety rules;
  • ability to work autonomously;
  • work well within a group;
  • ready to relocate to Ottawa for an undetermined period;
  • willing to travel across Canada, if necessary.
