Canada Post receives comprehensive final decision from Arbitrator MacPherson

June 11, 2020

Canada Post has just received the final decision from Arbitrator Elizabeth MacPherson. We are currently reviewing the 57-page document with a commitment to share the details and what they mean to employees shortly.

At this point, we can share with you that the decision includes wage increases for employees represented by both bargaining units of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW-Urban and CUPW-RSMC) of 2.0% effective Feb. 1, 2018; 2.0% effective Feb. 1, 2019; 2.5% effective Feb. 1, 2020, and 2.9% effective Feb. 1, 2021.

As well, the two new collective agreements (both Urban and RSMC) are four years in length, meaning they are in effect until December 31, 2021 (RSMC) and January 31, 2022 (Urban).

Canada Post would like to thank the Arbitrator for her diligence and professionalism in working with both parties. We would also like to thank employees for their patience during this process.
