Canada Post workers to refuse overtime

Canada Post workers to refuse overtime

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is calling a national overtime ban for both of its major bargaining units at Canada Post beginning 1 November at midnight.

The union says postal workers at Canada Post, including letter carriers, will not work more than an eight-hour day and not more than a 40-hour week.

“This is a health and safety issue rooted in poor staffing. We refuse to be injured any longer by a management team that cares more about the bottom line than sky-rocketing injury rates.”
