Bargaining teams for Canada Post and the Public Service Alliance of Canada/Union of Postal Communications Employees (PSAC/UPCE) met again over three days this week.

PSAC/UPCE tabled most of its remaining proposals, but the pace of negotiations has been slower than the Corporation would like. We are eager to reach a new collective agreement in a timely manner and are prepared to meet at any time, and to negotiate wage increases.

We remain fully committed to negotiating a new four-year collective agreement that is fair for employees while meeting our business challenges and the needs of our customers. The parties are scheduled to meet again in March.

The collective agreement expired on August 31, 2016 but will continue to apply as per the terms of the Canada Labour Code.

We will be providing you with more information on our proposals in the coming weeks, and continue to keep you informed of key developments in negotiations through your team leaders and Head Office communications.
