Canada Post, Union Reach Tentative Deal Averting Possible Job Action

Aug 31, 2016

STRIKE

Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers have reached a tentative settlement, averting the prospect of job action this week. The negotiations were extended twice since the weekend, when a deadline expired on a 72-hour job action notice issued last Thursday by the union.

The tentative agreements must still be ratified by more than 50,000 postal workers across the country before they become new contracts, but things are looking positive.

“We can’t give details of the agreements at this time, but we’re pleased that our members don’t have to resort to taking job action,” Mike Palecek, national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, said in a statement.

As a result of this news, Rhodes & Williams have made the decision to start sending out the mail we withheld and will continue for this week ─ unless we hear otherwise.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please email accounting@rhodeswilliams.com or kindly contact your account manager.

I wanted to send a quick note to let you know what a pleasure it has been to deal with Heather Bonadie. She has been assisting me and my wife over the last few days with auto insurance for a new car. She has been very responsive, informative, efficient and, most importantly, professional and friendly. I work in the professional services sector too and really appreciate someone as talented as she is. A great asset for your team!
