Deepak Chopra, president and CEO of Canada Post, and Guy Dubois, national president of the Association of Postal Officials of Canada (APOC), have signed a new three-year collective agreement four months before the current agreement expires.
According to a statement issued on Nov. 27, the agreement recognizes “the valuable contributions of APOC members to Canada Post’s success at serving Canadians. It includes wage increases in every year and improvements in health-care benefits.”
“Achieving this agreement well in advance underscores the respectful, cooperative relationship between the parties,” said Chopra, who will be stepping down from his post in March 2018.
APOC represents more than 3,500 supervisors and support staff such as trainers, route measurement officers and some employees in sales.
EFFECTIVE FROM APRIL 2018-MARCH 2021
APOC members ratified a tentative agreement earlier this month.
The new agreement takes effect on April 1, 2018, immediately after the current agreement expires. It will be in effect until March 31, 2021.
