Canada Post Negotiation Update: Postal Service Will Not be Interrupted While Talks Continue

Published by:

Canada Post has withdrawn its 72-hour notice, which was to take effect Monday, July 11.  As a result, there will be NO lockout. We also expect the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) to honor what it has said publicly on many occasions – that they wish to negotiate and have no plans to issue a strike notice.

Mail service is expected to continue without interruption, and we feel you can ship with with confidence. In the event of a strike or lockout, either party has to issue a 72-hour notice and should this occur we would advise you immediately.  At that time, we would work with customers to keep them informed and to prevent product from being trapped in the postal system.

The decision to withdraw the 72-hour notice followed a statement issued by the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labor, MaryAnn Mihychuk, for both Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers to continue their discussions beyond the notice period. The parties now have the opportunity to focus on serious negotiations.

Canada Post 60-Day Strike Mandate Set to Expire

Published by:

Negotiations between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) continue; however, a resolution is not near. Over the next ten days, activity from the union is expected as they attempt to address the expiration of their strike mandate.

The union’s 60-day strike mandate, based on a vote by their membership earlier this year, is set to expire on August 25, 2016. This timeline is set in the Canada Labor Code. Rather than secure the renewed support of their members through a vote, the union is looking at other ways to extend their strike mandate.

Based on options available to CUPW, a 72-hour strike notice can be issued by the union between now and August 25. This DOES NOT necessarily mean that there will be full-scale work disruption associated with the notice, as in a recent bulletin the union reiterated that they do not want to go on strike.
