Canada Post tables significant, time-limited offer in negotiations with CUPW

November 14, 2018

Dear Customer,

This afternoon, Canada Post tabled a significant, time-limited offer to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers in an effort to resolve negotiations and return our operations to normal so we can deliver the holidays to Canadians, retailers, charities and other customers.

About the improved offer

The offer improves pay increases to 2 per cent per year for all employees, and the extraordinary measure of a signing bonus of up to $1,000 to ensure we can reach a deal and deliver the holidays. This would be on top of the approximately 25 per cent pay increase from the recently announced pay equity ruling. The offer also addresses many of CUPW's concerns around health and safety and workloads.

The urgency to resolve negotiations

The urgency created by the backlogs and rapidly oncoming holiday volumes are why this offer is time-limited. It will be open for acceptance until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, November 17, 2018.
