Media Advisory - Postal Workers Plan For Canada Post's 2016 Annual Public Meeting

OTTAWA, August 17, 2016 /CNW/ - Representatives of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers are planning to attend Canada Post's annual public meeting and confront its elusive President and CEO, Deepak Chopra.

"Chopra's got some explaining to do," said Mike Palecek, national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.

"Harper's man in the post office has been a disaster from the get-go, when he began by shutting down the mail with a nation-wide lockout. Since then, he's slashed our services, spent who knows how much on mailboxes nobody wanted, refused to deal fairly with us, and now he's twiddling his thumbs at the negotiating table, waiting for an arbitrator to rescue him from having to negotiate."
