Canadian Postal Corporation Presents Offer To CUPW; Union Responds

On March 9, Donald Lafleur, 4th National Vice-President and Chief Negotiator of CUPW responded to the latest offer by CPC on its webpage, saying  that  “there are major problems with this first Global Offer from CPC. Instead of providing equality and fairness, this offer creates differences between RSMCs from different regions. New employees will be penalized with inadequate pensions.  In some cases, the pay rate will be even less than it is today, further widening the wage gap between RSMCs and Urban Workers. Your Negotiating Committee is currently preparing a comprehensive reply, which will address all of our demands.  Members should miss no opportunity to show the employer that we will not accept to be treated as second-class workers. Our future is at stake. We are worth so much more than this offer.”
