Canada Post and its largest union have reached a tentative settlement, averting the prospect of job action this week at the postal service.
The tentative agreements must still be ratified by more than 50,000 postal workers across the country before they become new contracts.
“We can’t give details of the agreements at this time, but we’re pleased that our members don’t have to resort to taking job action,” Mike Palecek, national president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, said in a statement.
The negotiations were extended twice since the weekend, when a deadline expired on a 72-hour job action notice issued last Thursday by the postal union.
