Throughout the arbitration, we continually made public statements calling on Canada Post management to return to the table to negotiate new collective agreements. Until that date, they have not returned to the table. If the CCP continues to refuse to return to the table and negotiate with us, we will get new collective agreements by the end of June 2020. The agreement is subject to ratification by PSAC-UPCE members across the country. After ratification by the parties, the agreement has an expiry date until August 31, 2024. During the COVID19 pandemic, we were on the front lines of maintaining delivery to Canadians. Now is the time for Canada Post to show all CUPW members that they appreciate the work we do. Management has a choice. They can rely on unconstitutional laws to deny us our fundamental rights, or they can come back to the negotiating table with fair offers that improve working conditions, staff and, most importantly, the health and safety of postal workers. Now is the time to resolve long-standing issues between the parties and the parties could then discuss longer collective agreements that would provide peace and safety at work and security for CUPW members.

If not, we will solve all these problems by renegotiating in the fall of 2021. Our successful preliminary agreement, reached on April 14 with the Canada Post Corporation Group, has been ratified by members. As you all know, since the fall of 2017, we have been trying to negotiate new collective agreements with Canada Post. We worked with mediators and conciliators for more than a year before meeting on October 22, 2018 invoked our right to strike. We thought we were close to collective agreements, but the CPC simply stopped negotiating and encouraged the government to resume labour law activities. As part of this return-to-work legislation, the government has appointed a mediator/arbitrator to resolve contentious issues. We tried to make a comparison in December 2018, but we were not successful. We began arbitration in January 2019 and are on the verge of ending this process. A collective agreement is a written legal contract that includes workers grouped into a single bargaining unit.

The contract will be concluded through collective bargaining between the union and the employer. Collective agreements generally include wages and social benefits. . . .
