Campaign for Postal Banking
04/02/2019 - (This article first appeared in the March/April 2019 issue of The American Postal Worker magazine.)
As was previously reported in the American Postal Worker, the Canadian government forced striking Canadian Union of Postal Workers back to work at Canada Post late last year through an act of parliament. CUPW begins 2019 in contract arbitration to resolve the ongoing dispute with Canada Post.
Heading into contract arbitration, postal workers aren’t just discussing pay and benefits – the union is using the forum to advocate for postal banking in Canada as well. The union sees postal banking as a critical step in developing a more equal society in Canada.
