As Canada Post continues to refuse to explore new revenue streams in negotiations, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers is looking to show how postal banking is a “win-win strategy” (censored 2013 Canada Post Report) for both the corporation and the Canadian people. To help illustrate how CUPW can continue to serve Canadians we are holding a non-perishable food drive for another bank that thinks of people before profits, the Edmonton Food Bank. We are encouraging members, allied groups, and the concerned public to come out and donate a non-perishable food item to the Edmonton Food Bank.
On August 23 between 2:00 – 6:00 pm CUPW will be holding an information rally and food drop off point at the Edmonton Mail Processing Plant (12135 149 Street).
Our President Larry Dionne (contact information below) will speak to the media at 3:15 pm regarding the event and ongoing negotiations. He will be available for questions and comments throughout the event.
We look forward to seeing you there and in your help getting this very important information out for public consideration in the midst of these unproductive negotiations.
