The UPCE National Executive Supports your Bargaining Team

Negotiating a new collective agreement on behalf of a membership is never an easy task. In fact, it is a responsibility that everyone takes very seriously. The UPCE National Executive has complete faith and trust in both the bargaining team, and in the longstanding process the Union continues to follow.

Deepak Chopra resigns

RE: Canada Post CEO Deepak Chopra announces he will resign in March 2018

The UPCE National Executive learned of Mr. Chopra’s decision to resign (stated as in March of 2018), on August 14, 2017. Mr. Chopra’s decision seemed to have been communicated to the media first, before being shared with employees and colleagues. Unfortunately, this is nothing new for Canada Post, and yet another example of a company that apparently prides itself in its “leadership behaviours.”
