Postal workers delivering parks 7 days a week ahead of Christmas, the union says


Postal workers in Canada are delivering parks seven days a week to ensure that they will be in time for the holidays, says Canada Post the largest association.

Mike Palesek, National President of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), said in a letter Monday that members of the Union are working every week of the week following rotating strikes in the country. The union is back to work on November 27.

Palecek said the union can not confirm a claim made by Canada Post in a statement on Saturday that the company had a return of 6 million parcels. Canada's post said that it can not guarantee packages will be delivered in due time for the holidays because of the backdrop.

"If a six-million package complain, there is nothing to do with CUPW rotating strikes, and sounds more than poor planning from Canada post to deliver the holidays," he said.

The minister takes mediator-arbitrator

In a statement on his website on Monday, the union has appointed Fedodish Labor Minister Patty Haju appointed Elizabeth McPherson as a mediator-arbitrator in the dispute. The government has stated in the legislation that it would do so.

"Your negotiations committee has everything possible to avoid the law," the Union said.

"However, because of the legislation, we will work with the Mediator Arbitrator to try to negotiate good collective agreements and avoid arbitration." We believe in our right to free team bargaining, but we will reluctantly participate in the legislative process. "

Palcec said CUPW Needs are still in a downtown hotel in Ottawa, where they have been in July, to work out collective agreements for their members.

Canada post shareholders leave, union says

He said that Canada's post-negotiators left the premises.

"Canada mailed out of the hotel over the weekend, giving us the impression that they have given up on collective bargaining and will simply wait for the arbitrator-mediator to impose obligations on our members," he said.

"CUPW remains vastly avoided to achieve negotiated settlements that ensure the health and safety of our members and indifferent to all workers."

Since the strike has been officially completed, protests have taken place from some Canada buses. Paleekek said that the pickets were organized by other unions in support of postparty.

"CUPW has not organized any pickets, and our members are back at work." "We do not know when or where our allies can prove solidarity with postpayers that are legitimate back to work," he said.

Inventory nearly triple last year

On Saturday, Canada said in a statement that the backlogged parcels are in postal yards and off-site locations across the country.

"Our employees are doing excellent work, but backlogs and heavy incoming volumes of parcels and continued illegal picketing is improving our ability to keep up," said the corporation.

"Our inventory is almost three times the height it was last year, with only three weeks until Christmas."

It has postponed dealers are continuing but will be delayed in the holiday season and in January.

Canada said it was delaying up to several weeks for parcel arrives from other countries, with the delays expected to decrease in December, and it could be "modest delays" for some parcels leaving Canada for other countries.

As for letter mail, the corporation said the backgammon should be cleared and delivers made in time for Christmas.

According to CUPW, the Association wishes to pay better and work security, guaranteed hours for its 8,000 rural and suburban couriers, and equal to those with the 42,000 urban employees of the corporation. It also wants Canada to adopt rules that would address work injuries.
