UPCE/PSAC ON STRIKE

PICKET LINES AT THE YDC

The UPCE component of PSAC, is in a legal strike position and has begun to exercise their rights to obtain a fair and equitable contract with Canada Post Corporation. These employees who work for Canada Post also work for us in many ways, performing support services in staffing, pay, benefits and many other duties. In the areas covered by the Scarborough Local, they work at 280 Progress and 1860 Midland Ave. They also work at SCLPP, Gateway and other locations.

UPCE was on a Legal Strike at 1860 Midland on December 14, 2004 at the YDC Parcel Hub in the Scarborough Local. The Local Executive stood on the picket line with their UPCE/PSAC Brothers and Sisters. Parcel distribution was disrupted across a large area the Greater Toronto Area.

The CUPW employees at YDC respected their Brothers and Sisters from UPCE and they should make us all very proud. I wish to thank the members.

In Solidarity
