CUPW – 2022-11-04 – Canada Labor Code

The Canada Post Corporation (CPC) and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) held a first consultation on October 27, 2022 to discuss CPC’s interpretation and implementation of 10 paid sick days under the Canada Labor Code (CLC).

The 10 paid sick days under the CLC will come into force in December 2022, with the option to access the first 3 days from 1 January 2023. Final regulations for 10 paid sick days under the CLC have not yet been released. federal government

This newsletter is for informational purposes only as it represents the CPC’s position and CUPW reserves its right to question the CPC’s interpretation after having had the opportunity to review and consider the CPC’s implementation plan in its entirety. In response, the CPC has indicated that it intends to publish a scenario-based interpretation in a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)-like document. This document has not yet been provided to CUPW.

The CPC has indicated that they intend to comply with the CLC’s guidelines and comply with those guidelines. CPC’s position is that by adding six (6) personal days to the seven (7) personal days we currently receive under the Urban and RSMC collective agreements, they will meet the CLC requirements.

  • All full-time and part-time Urban members will have six (6) personal days added to their current personal day bank.
  • All RSMC route holders will add six (6) personal days to their current personal day bank.
  • In the first year, six (6) additional personal days will be added on January 1, 2023, and will be available on the same date. In subsequent years, a total of 13 personal days will be added to your bank on July 1stSt for each year

As an example: This means that if you currently have seven (7) personal days in your bank, from January 1, 2023, six (6) days will be added, and you will now have thirteen (13) days in total.

If you have two (2) personal days in your bank as of January 1, 2023, six (6) will be added, giving you a total of eight (8) days.

  • These six (6) additional personal days can be used in the same manner as our current personal days. Canada Post said they will not distinguish between urgent or scheduled personal days and pre-approved ones.
  • There will be no change in how personal days are taken or paid. Subject to clauses 20.04 (City) and 36.04 (RSMC), members may carry no more than five (5) personal days for a total of 18 personal days at a time.


Temporary members will follow the Canada Labor Code. To be eligible for 10 paid sick days under the Canada Labor Code, you must be scheduled to work that day and be paid for the hours you are scheduled to work.

Beginning January 1, 2023, temporary members who have completed 30 days of continuous service will be entitled to three (3) paid sick days and will earn one additional day at the beginning of each month up to a maximum of ten (10) days. for each calendar year.

There are still many unanswered questions, such as:

  • How will the 10 paid sick days under the Code apply to PREs and OCREs; and
  • How the interpretation of the CPC will affect the payment of personal days.

We cannot answer all questions until we review the full interpretation of the CPC on this matter. The CPC has indicated that they will provide this information to the Union in the coming weeks. We know members are eager to understand the changes and their impact. The CPC is responsible for compliance with the Canada Labor Code and the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

in solidarity
