Question: The urban tentative agreement refers to the Memorandum of Agreements (MOAs) reached at the Deerfoot facility as possible alternatives to Separate Sort and Delivery (SSD). What are these MOAs?
Answer: CPC is introducing Separate Sort and Delivery in facilities to address the problems of lack of space due to increased parcels. Instead of introducing SSD, the urban Deerfoot MOA provides for four letter carriers assigned to one case with two carriers on each wave. On both waves one letter carrier sorts the mail, ties out, takes sequenced mail and prepares packets and loads. Upon their return to the facility, that letter carrier will unload and prepare neighbourhood mail. The second letter carrier prepares packets, sequences mail and loads. Upon their return to the facility that employee will sort manual mail to be delivered on the next delivery day and sort neighbourhood mail.
