This May Day we continue the struggle for justice. No matter where we come from, what we look like, or what we do, we all deserve to have our health and safety ensured at work. We must continue to demand governments and employers move towards social and ecological sustainability, where all are considered and cared for fairly– a way of living collectively where resources are shared in an equitable, peaceful and sustainable way.

Earth Day has been observed around the world for 50 years each April 22. CUPW and its members are proud to stand for the rights of workers and their loved ones. In the past, CUPW and its allies have made it clear that we are at a crossroads: our climate must be a priority. We cannot let our planet be exploited and destroyed anymore.

Across the world, people are taking steps to reclaim our future and send us on a better path. It will require big changes. We honour the voices of young people, like Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg who launched climate strikes of students all over the world. Now the youth of the world are calling us to support international Climate Strike activities on September 27. Slowly, a growing number of human beings all over Mother Earth are resetting humanity where happiness, fulfillment, equality, sustainability and dignity have greater value than the desires of the rich.

On June 17, 2019, the Canadian government declared a climate emergency, passing a motion through parliament calling climate change a “real and urgent crisis, driven by human activity.” This doesn’t shock us. We already know that our country is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the world and that it is becoming increasingly difficult for our planet to breathe.

Canada Post and its bargaining agents recognize that the postal service built to serve all Canadians also has a considerable environmental impact. Together, they acknowledge a shared interest and responsibility to reduce Canada Post’s environmental footprint. In April 2019, Canada Post, the Association of Postal Officials of Canada, the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, and the Union of Postal Communications Employees formally initiated a collaborative effort focused on the environment.

Delivering Community Power (DeCoPo) - We are at a crossroads. Our land, air and water are already feeling the effects of climate change. Economic inequality and precarious work are on the rise. Layoffs in fossil fuels extraction industries are leading to more economic uncertainty. Scientists tell us that, to prevent climate catastrophe, we must transition completely off fossil fuels in our lifetime. Canada can run entirely on renewable electricity by 2035 and transition to a 100% clean economy by 2050. If that’s what we want, we have to start now.

Dear Sister and Brothers,

Support Postal Banking - Download and Sign the Petition

Canada needs a postal bank. Thousands of rural towns and villages in our country do not have a bank, but many of them have a post office that could provide financial services. As well, nearly two million Canadians desperately need an alternative to payday lenders. A postal bank could be that alternative. Download and sign the petition urging the Government of Canada to instruct Canada Post to add postal banking, with a mandate for financial inclusion.
