Canada Post facing strike negotiations

The organisation is at odds with one of its unions.

31 May 2011

Union bargaining looks set to be required in Canada as the country's postal service seems ready to go on strike.

Canada Post employees are not happy with the pay and care package they have been offered and now seem destined for the picket line in order to show their anger.

Labour minister Lisa Raitt has urged the two parties to try and come to an agreement as strike negotiations could be required.

Some 48,000 urban postal staff are represented by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, as well as 7,000 rural and suburban.

However, with a 17 per cent drop in letter volume since 2007, Canada Post feels changes are essential.

"The latest counter offer from the union does nothing to address the significant challenges facing the company," it noted.

As well as this, the organisation is promising job security for both new and existing workers and up to seven weeks holiday per year.
