Respectful Workplace Review

Jessica L. McDonald, Chair of the Board of Directors and Interim President and CEO invited the UPCE to a discussion on respectful workplaces. We accepted and met with Canada Post and other bargaining agents on the morning of July 23, 2018. The issues of harassment and bullying seem to have increased over the years in our workplaces, especially for our members with disabilities.

Employee Engagement Survey

The UPCE continues to advocate for a return of the Canada Post Employee Engagement Survey. The Public Service currently uses the Public Service Employee Survey (PSES) which allows the government to identify what it is doing well and where it needs to improve.
