UPCE on Back-to-Work Legislation

The UPCE fully supports the CUPW and CLC joint statement on Canada Post negotiations and joins a number of other unions, including the PSAC, our bargaining agent, in condemning the federal government’s back-to-work legislation. We view this legislation as an attack on our rights as workers.


Back-to-work legislation will not resolve the issues at hand, especially the more deep-rooted causes of these conflicts that stem from senior management decision-making and the processes by which these decisions are made. In fact, it will most likely make matters worse. The continuing struggle is against the very mindset and culture that is detrimental to all employees of the corporation. This general mindset not only governs Canada Post, but influences its Group of Companies.
In solidarity.
