Work Reorganization Hurts Postal Workers

Canada Post’s work reorganization scheme known as the Modern Post is being implemented first in Winnipeg — and the harm it’s doing to postal workers is already clear. The Winnipeg local of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers has set up a blog for members in the city and beyond to talk about how they’re being affected and what to do about it: The Workers’ Struggle with the Modern Post.

Meanwhile, negotiations for the contract that covers most CUPW members are getting underway. The union leadership has produced a discussion paper, The Future of Canada Post.
