Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers have reached new tentative agreements.

The news was released Tuesday evening by MaryAnn Mihychuk, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour.

“These tentative agreements, reached voluntarily by the parties, are an important reminder for us all that a fair and balanced collective bargaining process works and can achieve real results for Canadian workers and employers,” said Mihychuk.

“Each side came to this negotiation with a long history of difficult strikes and lockouts. The leaders of Canada Post and CUPW met face-to-face for the first time when I invited them to a meeting with Minister Brison on August 19. Both parties took this opportunity to put Canadians first and helped avoid a strike or lockout.”

The agreements must now be ratified by employees.
