Be it further resolved that this change is effective immediately.

REAS, increasing route length will only create a higher injury rate for delivery agents;

 

WHEREAS, the SSD program will not save space or expenses as it purports to do but will only pad the already fat wallets of business school graduates trying to profit off public services but who otherwise do no meaningful work

 

WHEREAS, the Scarborough local has denounced the SSD program, and its implementation at 280 progress avenue.

 

WHEREAS, 66 ray avenue is now being threatened with the implementation of SSD, where carriers are already overburdened and struggling.

 

BE IT RESOLVED that Local 626 will immediately and publicly call upon Canada Post Corporation commits to ending its reckless SSD program immediately.
