Statement by the Honourable MaryAnn Mihychuk, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour

On continuing negotiations between Canada Post Corporation and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers

July 10, 2016                Winnipeg, Manitoba                    Employment and Social Development Canada

I am pleased that there has been movement at the bargaining table and that progress is being made. I encourage both Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers to continue their discussions beyond the lockout notice deadline. I remain hopeful that an agreement can be reached by the parties.

Federal mediators have been assisting the parties in their negotiations. Our government supports a fair and balanced collective bargaining process.

The Government of Canada has contingency plans in place in the event of a work stoppage. While a work stoppage will impact the way we deliver services to Canadians, we will continue to provide people with the services and benefits to which they are entitled.

Canadians are encouraged to visit for more information. The website will be regularly updated with relevant information.

I will continue to monitor the situation closely.
