Our PSAC bargaining team and management at Canada Post were back at the negotiations table in Ottawa from September 27 to 29, 2017.
Our PSAC bargaining team met in caucus for two days and reviewed in detail the global offer that Canada Post tabled on August 9, 2017. Our team fully considered the employer’s offer and prepared a counter-proposal which we tabled on September 27. Both parties met and discussed a number of outstanding issues.

In March the union and the employer selected Arbitrator Judi Korbin to settle our collective agreement, which expired June 30, 2015. We have been working for the past seven months to schedule arbitration dates!
Finally, after IMP dragged its feet for months and months, the Arbitrator had no other choice but to order the employer to an arbitration at the end of February. It’s shameful that the employer doesn’t respect us enough as employees to agree to arbitration dates in a timely manner.

Our bargaining team met with the employer in Ottawa from September 19 to 22, 2017.
Although progress is slow, the parties worked hard this week on all outstanding issues at the table and agreed to focus on priority areas. We are encouraged by the fact that the Employer removed the serious concessions that had been previously tabled under “Agency Transformation / Building For the Future”.

Our PSAC/UTE Bargaining Team met with the Canada Revenue Agency on May 3 and 4 to discuss wage increases for 2014 and 2015, consistent with our collective agreement signed last year. Unfortunately we were unable to reach an agreement over the two days and therefore proceeded to next step under our contract and the law – to discuss and agree upon an arbitration process
