Yep Canada Post changed their leadership perhaps it’s time CUPW did the same?
Difference between educated and noneducated.
Do you realize Cupw have ex carriers and clerks negotiating the contracts and still lost in the 70s and 80s

Cmon we keep hearing the same bs every contract, our negotiatiors aren’t uneducated fools but at some point they have become part of the problem. Personally I could care less- i won’t spend 1 minute on a picket line in support of a union who’s strike pay is less than minimum wage despite millions and millions of dues collected.

Not to mention it’s time to fix the wages. Letter carrier job gets harder and more stressful every year yet we are paid the same as inside workers? Unjust- and all LCs should make the same wage. Pay inside workers less and LCs the same hourly rate Thumbs Up Sign

I agree 100% but that will never happen.

Working inside is like a holiday camp compared to LC, I did it years ago for a while to get PT and also know a ton of people that went inside, all say same thing. I would jump at it but the only hours I would get would be graveyard. F that.

It has to happen eventually for this company to survive. You’ve got to have an incentive to entice people to become letter carriers rather than inside workers. The turnovers of carriers is ridiculous and expensive- only way to slow it down is a financial incentive. Of course this will require a union that doesn’t negotiate a pay cut for flyers for outside group and yet inside workers lost zilchPouting Face

Not gonna happen, ever. They want the higher paid ones to go inside ( and be relatively content) and eventually have an outside workforce that they can replace easier. It's all about numbers, they don't give a flying f about incentives to be letter carriers.

That’s the problem- they cannot replace or keep hundreds of trained letter carriers currently and the reason is obvious- pay rate is too low for the challenges the work puts on the shoulders of LCs. The job will continually get more difficult and without change staffing will become impossible.

Although I agree with you that it’s unlikely to change. With the current unions mentally and the company’s stubbornness real change is impossible eventually resulting in the demise of Canada Post.
