OTTAWA, Oct. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Canadian Union of Postal Workers' (CUPW)
National President Denis Lemelin says his union is working out inter-union
protocols with the Union of Postal Communications Employees (UPCE) that will
be used should the UPCE set up picket lines in the weeks to come.
"CUPW has a long history with the same employer and completely
understands how Canada Post tries to undermine its employees' rights and
benefits," said Lemelin. "UPCE has the strongest strike mandate in their
history. Clearly members are feeling used and abused. And all Canada Post
wants to do is respond with rollbacks."
In the past CUPW has worked out arrangements to support UPCE members on
picket lines without putting CUPW members in harm's way.
