CUPW has sought legal advice while in consultation with Canada Post Corporation and has taken measures to ensure you have options that respect your rights and the current applicable laws.
On October 30, members who are actively at work will need to provide accurate and up to date proof of vaccination by phoning a 1-800 number and attesting that they are either “fully vaccinated” or that they have chosen the rapid test option. Be advised that CPC’s current “practice” document specifies that they may require government issued proof of vaccination indicating the dates.
By choosing the rapid test option, you will be required to self test twice (2x) a week prior to entering your workplace and you will be required to attest to your results by again phoning the 1-800 number.
During the period from October 30 to November 15, 2021, CPC will start mailing rapid testing kits, at no costs to the workers, to the homes of those who have chosen the rapid testing option.
If by October 30, you have not selected one of the above options, you will receive an automated phone call reminding you that this is a requirement to continue attending work.
You will have to indicate your choice to CPC before November 15, or you will not be permitted to enter the workplace and will be placed on Leave Without Pay.CUPW
