Thanks to the mobilization of CUPW, the labour movement, our allies and the support of hundreds of municipalities, CPC is finally planning to expand into financial services.
Important for Postal Workers
Providing more financial services at corporate retail offices is not only good for the public, it’s also good for postal workers. While we do not expect the immediate creation of a large number of new jobs, providing new services will help protect our members currently working at the corporate retail counters. The best form of job security is having work to perform that is important to the Corporation and needed by the public. There are thousands of communities that have no bank but have Corporate post offices. Providing financial services will keep these post offices open. Also, the profits earned by new financial services will take financial pressure off CPC and be available to be reinvested in new services and more jobs.
