We have worked out an agreement with Canada Post Corporation (CPC) on the carry-over of personal days. This will ensure that members can be entitled to the full allotment of personal days, even during the transition to the July 1 personal days cycle.

Vancouver Local UPDATE - May 2017

''We have come too far, struggled too long, sacrificed too much, and have too much left to do, to allow what we have achieved for the good of all to be swept away without a fight. And we have not forgotten how to fight.''

Lane Kirkland, president of the AFL-CIO.

Canada Post Continues to Profit

Canada Post made $81 million in net profit in 2016 in spite of Management threats to lock out postal workers last summer, which scared away 100 million dollars in business. In fact Canada post has been profitable for 20 of the last 22 years. CUPW wants to see a plan that ensures the future viability of our postal service as well as expand services such as broadband, postal banking, services at the door for seniors and electric charging stations. Rural areas, where accessing services like banking and internet are an issue, will greatly benefit from these increased services.
