You may have heard by now the PSAC-UPCE and Canada Post have reached a tentative agreement. We do not know the details of this agreement, other than it is a four year agreement expiring in August 2024. Canada Post talks a lot about improving collaboration. Why won’t it start by negotiating with CUPW?
This Round of Negotiations
As you all know, we have been attempting to negotiate new collective agreements with Canada Post since the Fall of 2017. We worked with mediators and conciliators for over one year before invoking our right to strike on October 22, 2018. We thought we were close to collective agreements but then CPC simply stopped bargaining and pressured the government to impose back to work legislation.
