Canada Post Strike
May 25, 2011 by staff
Canada Post Strike, Canada Post said Wednesday there is enough time to negotiate a “fair and reasonable” agreement with the postal workers, as there is no possibility of a strike this week. Both sides were back at the table on Wednesday to continue talks aimed to avert a work stoppage. “Without the possibility of a strike this week, there’s plenty of time to negotiate a fair and reasonable,” Canada Post said in a statement.
Under labor laws, each side must give 72 hours notice before a strike or lockout. Canada Post union rejected the latest contract proposal on Tuesday, saying the offer would increase labor costs and 1.4 billion, but then made a counteroffer. “Even with a continued decline in mail volumes and a 3 billion and pension solvency deficit, Canada Post has made a counter offer competitive CUPW giving employees better pay and protect their pensions and safety job, “said the Crown Corporation.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers, which represents some 50,000 urban postal workers, is expected to issue an updated statement later Wednesday.
However, the union had said earlier that Canada Post had dropped some demands and modified others, and added that statements by the chief negotiator of the company “seems to justify” a return to the negotiating table.
Negotiations to reach a new collective agreement began last fall.
