OTTAWA – As the federal review of the post office prepares to wrap up its consultation phase, postal workers took the Liberals to task for a skewed consultation process and a task force report containing multiple factual errors and omissions. “The situation of our post office is being gravely misrepresented to the public,” Mike Palecek, the national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, told the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates on November 3rd.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has reviewed the 2016 discussion paper of the Task Force for the Canada Post Corporation Review entitled Canada Post in the Digital Age.

As you may recall, you promised that all options, other than privatization, would be considered during your review of our public post office. Unfortunately, this is not happening.
