Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have reached tentative two-year contract agreements, subject to ratification.
These tentative agreements are the result of negotiations that have been proceeding for several months. In a statement, Canada Post noted the outcome brings “much-needed certainty” as businesses and consumers prepare for the upcoming holiday shipping season.
The short-term agreements — two years compared to the typical four-year period — will allow more time to address ongoing challenges.
The Postal Service monitored negotiations and had contingency plans in place.
A CUPW ratification vote on the agreements is expected in the coming weeks.
