Canada Post labour negotiations extended
Masthead has learned the conciliation process between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers has been extended at the request of both groups, who are seeking to secure a negotiated settlement.

The union has called on its urban unit members to vote in support of a strike, a negotiating tactic that does not necessarily mean a strike will happen. However, there is still a possibility of a strike or lockout — now thought to start May 24 at the earliest — if the negotiations ultimately fail.

Apparently there are still major differences between the two parties. The CUPW website lists 17 demands for which Canada Post management has said "no."
