Rotating Canada Post strikes return to Winnipeg

Rotating Canada Post strikes return to Winnipeg

Unionized postal workers strike in Victoria Oct. 22, the first day of 24-hour rotating strikes by the union during contract talks with Canada Post.

The new offer includes a 2 per cent wage hike and some job security provisions.

The postal operator said the offer will expire Saturday, Nov. 17 at 11:59 p.m.

"This measure is to ensure we can reach a just-in-time resolution and deliver for Canadians ahead of the holiday rush", the Crown corporation said in an email.

In October, the rotating strikes were in Winnipeg.

CUPW said the crown corporation proposed a combined fund for both units of $10 million to help them become a "model organization in safety", but Canada Post already has an obligation under the Canada Labour Code to provide health and safety for its employees. "But we can not go back to work at the busiest time of the year without fixing the issues that keep us injured and overworked", said Palecek.

"Several important issues have not been addressed".

"The negotiating committee is now reviewing the offers and we won't have any comments until the review is complete", Tobin said.

"It is more important than ever for all of you to show your support for your demands. Show Canada Post that you are united and determined to achieve the collective agreements that you deserve", the letter said.

The backlog has caused substantial delivery delays, said Canada Post, adding there is little hope of catching up to normal delivery times while CUPW members are agreeing to the union's call for workers who are on the job to refuse overtime.

The two sides have been negotiating for nearly a full year, with little success despite the assistance of government-appointed mediators.

Continued rotating strikes at Canada Post will result in significant losses for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) across the country, Stairs warned, noting that smaller businesses are unable to negotiate lower shipping fees with other delivery services.

The union is negotiating contracts for 50,000 of its members in two divisions - urban carriers and rural and suburban workers.

"Without a quick return to normal operations, backlogs will rapidly increase and cause significant impacts to the Canadian retail economy, especially to smaller retailers". Trudeau did not elaborate on what actions could be taken, although the previous Conservative government passed legislation to end a two-week lockout of postal employees in 2011.
