UNION DUES WAIVER

 

Sisters/Brothers:

The National Constitution allows dues waivers when the member is off work and the requested dues waiver is approved as per the National Constitution.  In order to be eligible, you must be a member in good standing.  Membership is a condition of employment (4.07 of the Collective Agreement).  For RAND members, please note that upon becoming a member, the union dues waiver is not retroactive.

 

There are four instances when the National Office will not waive your dues:

  • If the member’s status is RAND (never signed an application for membership)
  • If the member is on WSIB and receiving pay through Canada Post
  • If the member is on approved STD (short term disability)
  • The first 17 weeks of Maternity Leave.

INFORMATION REQUIRED WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR DUES WAIVER REQUEST:

  1. Name
  2. Address
  3. Phone Number
  4. Date your Leave starts
  5. Date your Leave ends (if known)
  6. Reason for Leave
  7. D.#

 It is the responsibility of the member to send her/his request to waive her/his union dues to the Secretary-Treasurer.  If you do not waive your dues, and you return to work, you will be double-deducted union dues to recover the dues arrears.

**The Toronto Local does not have a dues assessment, therefore, if you are being deducted more than $90.61, please see your Shop Steward or feel free to contact me.**

In Solidarity,

 

Abdi Hagi Yusuf,

Secretary-Treasurer,

CUPW Toronto Local.

MANAGEMENTS TOTAL DISREGARD FOR WORKERS!

 

LET’S ORGANIZE MAY 30TH!

Sisters, Brothers, Cousins:

As we are all aware Canada Post Management just got enormous bonuses, bonuses that if were not given would wipe of the most of the 748 million dollar deficit. Keep in mind the higher the status the higher the bonuses.  Currently there are over 300 Directors alone, not to mention all the CEO and VP officers. All this on the backs of workers.  When it comes to our issues and money for workers they cry poor mouth.  It is shameful.

May 30th Day of Action

We stand in Solidarity,

 We demand improvements!

 

Sisters, Brothers, Cousins:

Our activists/members are the strength we have on the work floor, when you organize to take back the power it is noticed by the boss.  We own the work floor not management!  Over the past few months with Building Worker Power it was quite noticeable.
