Comrades and friends,
CPC has finally provided more details on how a federal vaccine mandate will affect CUPW members. The link included below explains the options left for those still unvaccinated. This development is the result of extensive legal exploration by both CPC and CUPW around circumstances that are not properly addressed by our collective agreement. Please carefully read the CUPW bulletin as well as the legal opinion from the Alberta Federation of Labour to fully inform yourself. If anything changes, we will be sure to keep you updated.
Also in this dispatch: proposed peak season and annual shift bid schedules for the EMPP, as well as volunteer opportunities to campaign for CUPW allies running in the upcoming Edmonton municipal elections.
Be safe and enjoy your long weekend.

Tensions are high about vaccines and the measures taken to deal with COVID-19 in general. Fatigue and anxiety are real, and we have to be patient with one another, and all do our best to protect ourselves and avoid transmission of the virus. CUPW has sought legal advice while in consultation with Canada Post Corporation and has taken measures to ensure you have options that respect your rights and the current applicable laws. As we have been doing throughout the pandemic, CUPW will continue to keep you updated with current information on processes that will impact you in your workplaces. This will assist you to better understand the stakes and consequences of your choices. Read More >>
