Rural and Suburban Mail Carriers (RSMCs) ratified a collective agreement on Sept. 30, 2003, making them CUPW members and Canda Post employees. This move allowed RSMCs the opportunity to bargain collectively for fair wages and work conditions. The 6,000 RSMCs deliver mail in rural and suburban areas.
