Postal workers' video blog makes negotiations more transparent
Members need to know about negotiations that could affect the future of postal service.
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is involved in tough round of negotiations that could affect the future of postal service in Canada. During these current negotiations, for greater transparency, the union is doing a weekly video blog to help keep members up-to-date on what's going on in negotiations, and include them in the process.
"In every round of negotiations, it's important to have clear and accurate information to focus the debate and make well-informed decisions," CUPW's website says. "This is even more important in crucial negotiations such as these."
The Video Blog features short presentations by CUPW President Denis Lemelin on the union's activities around negotiations. In these videos, he provides an update on one or two issues. As negotiations move forward, this video blog will deal with a more varied range of issues and will take on greater importance as a firsthand source of information.
It's a personal and direct way that intended to more deeply involve the union's members, especially the growing number of them who prefer news and information via online video.
In the current edition, Lemelin reports on the employer's positions.
