UPCE on Back-to-Work Legislation

The UPCE fully supports the CUPW and CLC joint statement on Canada Post negotiations and joins a number of other unions, including the PSAC, our bargaining agent, in condemning the federal government’s back-to-work legislation. We view this legislation as an attack on our rights as workers.

CUPW Rotating Strikes

The UPCE National Executive is appalled to learn that Canada Post management has decided to discontinue sick leave provisions for CUPW represented employees, especially during rotating strikes while a majority of the impacted employees remain actively at work. 

Recognizing the contract dispute, the UPCE vehemently opposes any company’s attempt to win a labour dispute by preying on the most vulnerable. The fact that Canada Post would not only deny its employees from accessing disability benefits, but kick them off the system while they are ill, injured, or disabled is callous.

PSAC-UPCE Pension Advisory Council Alternate

Seeking: PSAC-UPCE Pension Advisory Council Alternate (s)

The PSAC-UPCE is seeking candidates for alternate appointment (s) to the Canada Post Pension Advisory Council.  

The Pension Advisory Council was established when the Canada Post Corporation Registered Pension Plan was formed in 2000 and is part of the current governance structure. The mandate can be found here: https://cpcpension.com/homepage/gov_PAC-e.asp 

Respectful Workplace Review

Jessica L. McDonald, Chair of the Board of Directors and Interim President and CEO invited the UPCE to a discussion on respectful workplaces. We accepted and met with Canada Post and other bargaining agents on the morning of July 23, 2018. The issues of harassment and bullying seem to have increased over the years in our workplaces, especially for our members with disabilities. 

UPCE Scholarship Program

To all members of the UPCE

As previously mentioned, the Union of Postal Communications Employees (UPCE) has created its own scholarship program for UPCE members and their children. This is in addition to any existing Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) scholarships.

The $2,000 UPCE Scholarship Program, is available to all UPCE members in standing (and their children), who are enrolled at a post-secondary institution.
