For decades, the sisters and brothers who delivered the mail in rural and suburban Canada were forced to work without any benefits — just like gig-workers today. No sick leave; no maternity leave; no holiday pay. They made less than minimum wage. The vast majority of them were women. Federal legislation made it illegal to form a union. Then CUPW entered the fight.
CUPW is proud to share its latest documentary on the resolute persistence of these workers to organize, achieve rights and benefits, and to become an integral part of the union itself. This is the inspiring story of the sisters who struggled to gain the most significant pay equity settlement in Canadian history. In Justice and Dignity for All, you’ll relive that struggle as these activists tell the story, in their own words, of the victories, defeats, and setbacks, and the persistence that comes from knowing your cause is just.
