UPDATED: The rally now takes place JUNE 17th at 5:30

After holding an effective series of rotating strikes, forty-five thousand members of CUPW were locked out by Canada Post yesterday. At issue are significant concessions demanded by the Corporation, including the introduction of a two-tiered wage system for new employees, a reduction in the amount of full-time employees, and roll-backs to the sick leave plan. Picket lines are now up at postal facilities across the country.
