Following nearly a year of negotiations with Canada Post, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) began rotating strikes across the country on Monday, Oct. 22...CUPW’s membership of 50,000 overwhelmingly authorized a strike action following a vote in September. Over the last two years, massive increases in parcel volumes contributed to workplace injuries increasing by 43 percent. What can you do?

APWU members are encouraged to print off one of the CUPW’s signs, take a pictures of you – and your co-workers if possible – holding the sign(s). Post the image to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with a  message of support and tagging CUPW and #negos2018.

Statement by President Dimondstein on

White House Plan to Privatize the Postal Service

06/21/2018 - The White House proposal on restructuring the federal government released today, “Delivering Government Solutions in the 21st Century,” delivered nothing but misinformation and, if implemented, would end regular mail and package services at an affordable cost to 157 million addresses every day. Furthermore, the White House plan is an attack on many federal agencies and the public services they provide.

Eliminating the universal service obligation, as the plan suggests, would hurt business and individuals alike, and would be a dagger aimed at the heart of rural America and undermine e-commerce.
