Union sues Canada Post over plan to end doorstep delivery

Unionists in Canada have launched a major legal challenge against Canada Post’s current efforts to adapt to falling letter volumes.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), revealed that it will file a lawsuit in the Federal Court of Canada claiming that the state-owned postal service does not have the right to refuse to provide doorstep delivery of mail. The challenge will state that only Canada’s Parliament has the authority to make such changes to the postal service.

The union which represents around 50,000 postal workers, is joined by groups representing people with mobility issues in launching the challenge suggesting that Canada Post is unlawful in removing doorstep delivery.

Last December Canada Post announced plans to end doorstep mail delivery as part of a five-pronged bid to counter the losses being made by its letter business. Many Canadians already receive their mail via community or centralised mailboxes, rather than delivered to their individual doorstep.
