The NEB will meet to discuss this development.
Third mediator appointed
Guy Baron, Director General of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service has been appointed to join Sherri King and Audrey-Melissa Therrien who have been working with the parties for the past three months. The Mediators have been playing an active role assisting the parties.
Notification of 72-hour notice
Giving the resumption of negotiations, we are not filing a 72-hour notice. We will notify all members in the event that either the employer or the Union files the 72-hour notice.
CPC announces conditions of employment
Canada Post has provided CUPW with a description of the wages, benefits, and working conditions which they will impose should either party provide the 72-hour notice of a lock-out or strike. CUPW responded that we are determined to negotiate an agreement.
Thank you for your support
The Negotiating Committee wishes to thank all of the members for the tremendous outpouring of support for our efforts to negotiate with Canada Post. We cannot say when we will conclude an agreement, but with your continued support, we will negotiate until we are successful.
