Canada Post workers hold off on strike notice
Canada Post workers will not be striking – at least not before Wednesday.
The union that represents postal workers says it has presented Canada Post with new offers.
If the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) gives 72 hours notice, 50,000 of its members are legally allowed to strike, and Canada Post is allowed to lock out its workers.
But CUPW representatives say the union hasn’t presented its notice. And Canada Post has not served notice of a lockout either.
The union and Canada Post both say the number-one sticking point in negotiations involves changes to employee pension plans.
