Canada Post: “Postal service will not be interrupted while talks continue”
As the talks between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) continue, the post operator announced on Sunday (10 July) that it had withdrawn its 72-hour notice. “As a result,” added Canada Post, “there will not be a lockout, which will allow both parties to focus their efforts on serious negotiations.”
The statement from Canada Post continued: “We are also expecting the union to honour their repeated public statements that they have no plans to issue a strike notice. Assurance from both parties that the postal system will remain open for business while we negotiate will provide the certainty that Canadians and our employees are looking for.
“Canada Post is committed to negotiating agreements that are fair to our employees while providing affordable pricing and service to Canadians.”
