    1. Aug. 31, 2016LABOUR PEACE AT CANADA POST

      OTTAWA – Canada Post is pleased to have reached tentative short-term agreements with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW). The agreements will avert a work disruption, bringing much-needed certainty in the postal system for our employees and customers. Canadians can now use the postal system with confidence. This is especially important as Canadian businesses large and small are already planning for the upcoming holiday shipping season.

      They're giving it another 24 hours. Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers have agreed for a second time to extend mediated contract talks. The two sides say they'll continue bargaining for another day with the help of a special mediator in a bid to resolve their labour dispute.

      Mail and parcels are being processed and delivered across the country as normal.
