Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) – Fighting for Equality: Backgrounder Number 3


This 1984 Backgrounder deals with the importance of the fight for equality by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) and notes successes, including winning paid maternity leave, seniority rights, fair job classification, equality for part-timers, and across-the-board dollar increases. It also outlines steps CUPW has taken to build equality and unity within the union and highlights equality issues still affecting postal workers, including racism and sexism, and the special problems facing women and parents.
