A MESSAGE TO OUR MEMBERS ABOUT THE POSTAL STRIKE

Fellow members,

As you know, over 50,000 public service employees represented by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have chosen to undertake strike action in support of their position at the negotiating table. At this difficult time, the Institute expresses its support for the workers represented by CUPW and for the leaders of our sister union.

Our own members need no reminder of the importance of conducting job action in support of their rights. This is especially true when negotiating with an employer whose only interest is to cut costs no matter the impact on services to Canadians. The postal workers’ actions are particularly significant in an environment that is anti-labour and anti-public sector.

Please see these Guidelines for PIPSC members who encounter a CUPW picket line.

In Solidarity,
Gary Corbett
