GATINEAU, QC, Aug. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Last night I proposed to Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers that I appoint a special mediator to assist them in their negotiations. I will do so expeditiously.
I expect both parties to work with this special mediator to come to a resolution and avoid a work stoppage. I continue to closely monitor the situation.
