  • Title: Stop Cutting Public Postal Services and Jobs | QUALITY PUBLIC SERVICES
    Descriptive info: / Stop Cutting Public Postal Services and Jobs.. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is campaigning to save public post offices and jobs.. A bulletin on our campaign follows:.. Canada Post Is Closing Post Offices In Urban Areas And Yours May Be Next.. July 19, 2012 - Canada Post signalled its intent to close an unspecified number of urban public post offices in its most recent corporate plan.. The corporation also closed or proposed closing fifteen urban post offices in the first six months of 2012.. This is a large number, the most we've seen in many years.. Unfortunately, we expect more proposals for closures in the months to come.. Of course, we don't know for sure which offices Canada Post may target.. But we do know that 359 specific CUPW offices are protected by a federal government moratorium on post office closures in rural and small towns.. In other words, some CUPW offices are not protected by the moratorium, which means they are vulnerable.. (Note: You can check the list of CUPW offices protected by the moratorium at.. www.. c.. a.. ).. There were 533 public post offices where our members work at the end of May 2012.. CUPW's collective agreement only protects 493 post offices (under  ...   services you can only get at a public post office.. Working conditions.. : Private outlets don't provide the same working conditions either.. Workers at these outlets are often underpaid and overworked.. In general, CUPW is increasingly concerned about the direction that our public post office is taking.. In addition to closing post offices, Canada Post is eliminating rural mailbox delivery and removing street letter collection boxes.. It also hopes to cut thousands of positions in hundreds of communities across the country by reviewing and modernizing its operations.. In our view, instead of cutting, the corporation should be adding new revenue-generating services such as postal banking, which has proved to be a money-maker in many other countries.. Other postal administrations around the world are expanding services.. Why not Canada Post?.. What Can You Do?.. If post offices in your community are vulnerable:.. Sign a letter to your local Member of Parliament which requests help in keeping public post offices open.. Get local businesses and organization to pass our resolution on keeping local post offices open.. You can get the letter and resolution from your local or at.. In solidarity,..
