In a giant white RV with "Stop the Cuts – Save Canada Post" splashed across it in bright red, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers is taking to the road.
CUPW is hitting the road to tell Canadians they should tell Harper to hit the road in the next election.
They have 96 days, an RV and sheer determination. Postal worker union members are driving across Canada to stop cuts and save home mail delivery.
Unionized temp agency loses its contract with Canada Post less than a year after signing first collective agreement. Would you say union-busting?
The union representing 51,000 postal workers is adding its voice to the growing chorus of concerns over Bill C-51, the federal government's sweeping national security bill.
Postal workers have said that Harper will regret his decision to privatize Canada Post. And with the election this year, we'll see if they're right.
Contrary to what you might have read on social media and elsewhere, the Union is not in consultation with the Corporation to deal with problems, real or imagined, facing the CPC pension plan.
A new poll found that 60 per cent of respondents oppose Canada Post's plan to replace door-to-door delivery with delivery to a community mailbox.
