The Canadian Union of Postal Workers has responded to Canada Post’s offer of binding arbitration, and the union says, no.
In a statement this morning, CUPW says it is refusing arbitration as a “matter of principle” and hopes to reach a negotiated settlement.
Canada Post said late Wednesday it would extend its lockout notice to Monday at 12:01 a.m. and would be willing to submit to arbitration in an effort to resolve the ongoing dispute.
The deadline had initially been set for Friday at 12:01 a.m. So Canadians will have mail tomorrow, but maybe not on Monday.
There are no talks planned and Canada Post spokesperson Jon Hamilton said yesterday, the two sides couldn’t be further apart.
