Purolator Bargaining Update

Purolator Bargaining Update

February 22, 2024

We are pleased to report that last Friday afternoon, February 16, the parties were able to reach a tentative deal that is retroactive to the expiry of the previous Collective Agreement.

While we cannot release the details of the tentative deal at this time, we can say that the bargaining team will be unanimously recommending the deal.

We are in the process of securing meeting rooms and locations for ratification meetings. Members of the bargaining unit will be advised as soon as details are confirmed.

Canada Post bargaining: Tell us how to improve you next contract

Bargaining Input Call

In preparation for this round of bargaining, PSAC has adopted a framework for receipt of bargaining input, with the goal of improving the focus of bargaining, streamlining the process, improving responsiveness to workplace issues and increasing our successes.
Using an online form and a database to input bargaining demands should help to prevent duplication in the input and forwarding of demands. It will also simplify the process of drafting and revising reports for the bargaining conference.

Purolator Bargaining Update

We met with the Company in Vancouver December 5-7 to discuss all outstanding items. We were hopeful we would be able to reach an agreement before the end of the year but due to the number of outstanding items we were unable to do so. The interim survey of the membership and the monetary priorities as suggested by you helped guide our discussions for this session in particular. While we agreed to a number of language changes the main focus but negotiations for this session were primarily focused on monetary discussions.

PSAC members and their communities are invited to show Canadians what northern food insecurity looks like by taking part in PSAC’s new campaign, Illunnata, which means “all of us” in Inuktitut. Because all of us deserve food security.  

We're asking members and their communities to submit photos showing what food insecurity looks like in the North — grocery store price signs, sticker tags of food prices, grocery receipts, examples of what $100 can buy. Show the rest of Canada what food insecurity looks like for you.

PSAC launches second campaign to ensure clean water for all

In collaboration with Indigenous communities and in the spirit of reconciliation, PSAC is launching our second campaign to demand safe, clean, water for all.  

Despite repeated promises dating back to 2015 from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to end long-term water advisories by 2021, the government has failed to meet the deadline, and many First Nations continue to have unreliable access to clean, safe water.
