The human element -- the ways in which neighbourhoods are made better, safer, more connected places because of the daily presence of postal workers -- too often gets lost.
Yesterday, Canada Post announced it was "suspending future deployment of the program" to replace door-to-door delivery.
CUPW is happy that Canada Post has "temporarily" suspended its decision to end home mail delivery, but the union would like to see a "permanent" halt to the delivery cuts.
Disability organizations remain concerned about existing community mailboxes' accessibility and echo CUPW's calls for a permanent end to the cuts on door-to-door delivery.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is calling for an immediate halt to the door-to-delivery cuts scheduled in the coming weeks prior to the Liberals forming the new government.
Two of the major federal parties need to be clearer about their positions on postal service cuts in order to avoid misleading the public, according to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.
Opposition party leaders are calling on the Prime Minister to instruct Canada Post to stop removing home mail delivery until the upcoming federal election.
