OTTAWA, June 17 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Union of Postal Workers
(CUPW) is hosting an international modern post conference for the next three
days in Ottawa.
The first of its kind, the conference will bring together front line
postal workers from Great Britain, Korea, the United States, Australia,
Norway, France and Belgium to talk about the effects of larger scale
"Canada Post is about to spend billions on new technology that will
change the way we process and deliver mail," said CUPW National President
Denis Lemelin, "so the timing is perfect for us to come together, share and
learn from each others experience."
Canadian postal workers can learn much from the developments that have
occurred or that have been rejected in technologically advanced countries.
"All attendees will have something important to say about the historical and
future effects of large scale technological change on postal services, their
economic context, the impact on inside and outside workers and strategies for
the future," said Lemelin.
