OTTAWA, Nov. 27, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada Post President and CEO Deepak Chopra and Guy Dubois, National President of the Association of Postal Officials of Canada (APOC), signed a new three-year collective agreement today – four months before the current agreement expires.
"Achieving this agreement well in advance underscores the respectful, cooperative relationship between the parties," says Mr. Chopra.
The agreement recognizes the valuable contributions of APOC members to Canada Post's success at serving Canadians. It includes wage increases in every year and improvements in health-care benefits.
APOC members had ratified a tentative agreement earlier in November. The new agreement takes effect on April 1, 2018, immediately after the current agreement expires. It will be in effect until March 31, 2021.
APOC represents more than 3,500 supervisors and support staff, such as trainers and route measurement officers, and some employees in sales.
