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


August 26, 2016            Gatineau, Quebec         Employment and Social Development Canada

I announced yesterday that I would appoint a special mediator to assist Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers in reaching an agreement that would avoid a work stoppage. Today, I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Mr. William Kaplan, a highly respected mediator and arbitrator, to assist the parties. Mr. Kaplan joins the team of federal mediators working with the two parties including Guy Baron, Director General of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, who will also support this engagement. I am hopeful that this will bring a new perspective to the negotiating table, which could motivate the parties to find a solution and move beyond their current impasse.

I continue to closely monitor the situation.
