Show your support for CUPW

The Alberta Federation of Labour would like to express our pride in our CUPW Sisters and Brothers.

They have been working tirelessly for months to improve working conditions for the letter carriers, plant workers and rural routes mail carriers they represent across Canada. And now, as a result of their hard work, they have reached a tentative agreement with Canada Post. While CUPW didn’t get everything they had hoped for in this round of bargaining, they have successfully defended against an aggressive and completely unwarranted attack on their members’ pensions. We also know that CUPW’s fight to address inequalities in pay for female employees at Canada Post will continue.

Please refer to the news bulletin for more information.
