Potential postal strike/lockout delayed with new offer
Strike action from Canada Post workers has been delayed, at least until July 6, after the Canadian Union of Poster Workers presented the corporation with a new proposed deal on July 1.
A detailed description of the off is available on the union’s website at http://www.cupw.ca/en/cupw-presents-global-offer
Union officials indicated over 90 per cent of their roughly 50,000-person membership has voted to, “support the union’s demands for equality, improvements and no concessions”.
The union is required to issue 72 hours notice before taking strike action, while Canada Post is also required to provide notice before locking workers out.
