WCB Vocational Rehabilitation What Can the WCB Offer to Help Me Get Me Back to Work?

ALL MEMBERS ARE TO REPORT TO WORK AS SCHEDULED

Unless Given Direction By Management or Your Picket Captain.

On July 6, 2016, Canada Post extended their 72-hour notice that our Collective Agreement is no longer in place. This is not an automatic trigger for a lockout or strike.

Members who do not show up for work may be subject to discipline. The Collective Agreement will no longer be in place and we would fall under the terms and conditions of the Canada Labour Code. Therefore, all members must report to work.

The Union remains committed to negotiating a Collective Agreement that is fair for all postal workers.

If you have any questions, please contact your shop steward or picket captain. Your picket captain is posted on the picket duty roster.

In Solidarity,
Jennifer Savage
President

TEMPS AND CASUALS HAVE FULL RIGHTS ON THE PICKET LINE!

Over the next few weeks, strike votes will be conducted across the country. We hold these votes to show the Bosses that we are united in our demands for ZERO ROLLBACKS of our Collective Agreement. If, after this, the corporation still refuses to bargain with us, there is a very real possibility that we, as a Union, could be on the picket line in the upcoming months. As a result, many temps and casuals are left wondering what their rights are in the event of a work stoppage.
