Local 560 Letter to CPC–Re: Cleaning of Equipment with regards to COVID-19

On Sunday March 22nd/20, after receiving approval from the Local Executive, a Letter was sent to Canada Post Management from Local 560 demanding that the Corporation implement immediately new cleaning measures to protect our members from the possibility of being exposed to the COVID-19 virus.  The letter and World Health Organization’s directive with regards to preparing the workplace for protecting employees is attached.  As always we would also like to remind our members of their right to refuse to do dangerous work under Art. 33.13 of the Urban Collective Agreement and under Section 128 of the Canada Labour Code.

In Solidarity,

Steve Hinschberger, President, Local 560 CUPW
