Alberta Federation of Labour – ACTION ALERT

Our post office is under review – Have your say!

The federal government appointed an independent task force earlier this year to identify options for the future of Canada Post. It said that everything but postal privatization would be on the table. 

The House of Commons Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates is conducting a study on the Canada Post Corporation.  Individuals and organizations are invited to participate by sharing their needs for postal services and opinions on Canada Post by questionnaire.

The very future of Canada Post is at stake – the task force needs to hear from you!

Please see the attached bulletin and review poster from CUPW.

Say yes to an expanded, universal, affordable, public and green postal service!
