Dear Mr. Ferguson,
I am writing to request that you examine the decision-making that led to the incorrect reporting of injuries to labour Canada by Canada Post during the years 2010 to 2017 and determine if the incorrect reporting of workplace injuries resulted in improper bonuses being paid to senior management of Canada Post.
There is no dispute that Canada Post continues to have the highest injury rate of all industries in the federal sector. There is also no dispute that Canada Post submitted false injury reports to Labour Canada for a number of years. As you can see from the tables 3.1(a) and 3.2 (a) from the Labour Canada Report on Occupational Injuries in the Federal Sector the number of disabling injuries the disabling injury rate reported to Labour Canada by Canada Post increased by 90% from 2013 to 2014. In reality the injury did not increase by anything close to this amount. What actually occurred was that Canada Post was discovered to be submitting false information to Labour Canada for many years.
