OTTAWA, Aug. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - The Canadian Union of Postal Workers
(CUPW) will deliver their submission, which includes significant new polling
results on postal deregulation, to the federal government's Canada Post
Corporation Strategic Review. The union will also deliver over
10,000 postcards which feature the message Hey Harper - Hands off my post
office: Say no to postal deregulation.
Who: Denis Lemelin, CUPW National President
Where: 330 Sparks Street, Ottawa
When: Sept. 2, 2008 at 9:30 a.m.
The delivery coincides with the final day for submissions to the
government's strategic review advisory panel. The panel has been asked to
answer basic questions such as should the letter market be deregulated and
opened to competition. The federal government announced this review on
April 21, 2008, but refused to hold public hearings or even publicize the
review to any great extent. It was left to CUPW to seek public input through
postcards and polling.
