Canada Post presents details on its opening proposals to PSAC/UPCE


Bargaining teams for Canada Post and the Public Service Alliance of Canada/Union of Postal Communications Employees (PSAC/UPCE) were back at the negotiating table this week for the first time since the parties exchanged opening proposals in October. The parties met on January 17 and 18.

Our negotiating team spent time elaborating on what we discussed in our opening remarks on October 19. The Corporation tabled all of its language for all of its proposals in order to ensure a mutual understanding. The parties are scheduled to meet again in February.

The Corporation is prepared to provide wage increases and remains committed to achieving a new four-year collective agreement in a timely manner. It is our goal to reach an agreement that is fair for employees and that helps us to address our business challenges.

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

We will keep you informed of key developments in negotiations through your team leaders, Head Office communications.
