Organization Committee Meeting: May 28, 2015

YOU ARE INVITED!

The Organization Committee invites YOU to its next scheduled meeting! The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has a proud history of Active Community Involvement. Add your valuable input and have a voice, if not a vote with our Committee. We are a Social Force that has brought great things to people besides their Amazon orders and letters from Grandma. For example, in 1981, as a result of a forty-two (42) day strike, CUPW successfully negotiated Maternity leave. This was later extended to other government workers and is now a benefit that is extended to all Canadians. This summer marks the 50th year Anniversary of the Job Action that separated the wheat from the chaff. Look how far we have come, look how far we have yet to go. Where will you be when the action starts; which side are YOU on?

What: Organization Committee Meeting

Where: Union Hall, 4530 Dawson St., Burnaby, BC

When: Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Who: Everyone Welcome

Why: YOU ARE CUPW

The following tells the story of the selfless act of devotion demonstrated by one member who set out to right what was put wrong by Canada Post.

MSC RESTRUCTURE UPDATE - February 16, 2015

Postal Transformation

Canada Post has embarked on an aggressive campaign to streamline its operations and cut jobs. They call it – “Postal Transformation”. It begs the question; what have they transformed? I think it is important to note, other than the automation of parcel and mail processing, the method in which the customer receives their product has remained unchanged. The employer’s agenda is clear - disregard health and safety, overburden the workers, and extinguish service standards. In turn, they maximize profits and pay out bonuses to management.

Op/Ed: Burnaby Now - Why we need to save Canada Post

alt


"Rather than having mail delivered to your doorstep by a familiar and friendly face, the elimination of door-to-door will mean you'll have to trek to a Community Mail Box (CMB), often quite a ways down the road or around the block. In Delta, with so many retirees living in communities like Ladner and Tsawwassen, residents are rightfully alarmed. Senior and mobility-challenged customers will be inconvenienced or put at risk." - Read the full article HERE
