The Canada Post Corporation (CPC) provided your bargaining team with a final offer on September 16, 2013. Your bargaining team does not agree with this offer and will pursue every avenue available to seek improvements. This offer does not mean that bargaining should stop, or that it is not possible to achieve something more.

Over the last several months we have been subjected to ultimatums, attempts to circumvent the bargaining process, final offers and even a forced vote that was found to be non-compliant with federal labour law. In the meantime, Treasury Board meets with employees of other federal law enforcement agencies and agrees to settlements that address issues and provide for superior compensation. It then tried to keep one of those settlements secret from us.Enough is enough. We are not second-class public servants.
