This week’s release of CPC’s 2017 Social Responsibility Report confirms that there is a health and safety emergency at Canada Post! The report reveals that the most serious injuries (full-day lost time injuries) increased 36% last year. In fact the 2017 lost time injury rate was 46% greater than 2015. In the report the Corporation states “We are not happy with the results. Clearly more work must be done”.
CUPW has several important demands aimed at reducing the number of injuries at Canada Post.
For many years the only thing CPC management did to reduce injuries was to submit false reports to Labour Canada. Now the new management admits there is a problem but says No to all of our proposals to address the crisis.
Negotiations are the only time that we have the opportunity to make management address our health and safety issues. We have had years of lies and inaction. Now management tells us they are not “happy” with the results but they still do nothing.
It is time for action.
It is time that CPC comes to the bargaining table and negotiates solutions.
