CUPW pressing for “greener” Canada Post

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has joined up with environmental and community groups to present “innovative ideas for a different kind of post office” that “might fuel a greener economy”. Among the ideas proposed by the “Delivering Community Power” campaign are: electric charging stations at post offices, converting the postal fleet to made-in-Canada electric vehicles, mail carriers checking up on seniors and those with limited mobility, and postal banking as a means of financial inclusion and green investment.

In a statement issued by the CUPW yesterday (29 February), Brenda McAuley, the national president of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association, was quoted as saying: “What if we used Canada Post’s vast delivery network to deliver the kinds of changes that Canadians really want – environmentally friendly options that support rural and Indigenous communities and local businesses?”

The CUPW’s Mike Palecek added: “It’s time to tool up to fight climate change and our post office can be that tool.”
