OTTAWA, November 27, 2017 /CNW/ – Canada Post President and CEO Deepak Chopra and Guy Dubois, National President of the Association of Official Affairs of Canada (APOC), today signed a new three-year collective agreement, four months before the current contract expires. APOC members ratified an interim agreement earlier this month. “The timely reach of this agreement underscores the respectful cooperation relationship between the parties,” Chopra said. The agreement honours the valuable contributions made by APOC members to the success of the Canada Post Office in serving Canadians. It includes wage increases each year and improvements in health services. APOC members had ratified an interim agreement in early November. The new agreement will enter into force on April 1, 2018, immediately after the current agreement expires. It is in effect until March 31, 2021.

This is an important step in building a predictable business environment for our customers. The current collective agreement expires on March 31, 2018. The new collective agreement will enter into force on April 1, 2018 for a period of three (3) years.
