Pay Equity Updates

Here is an update from the Corporation on Friday, January 8th:

When will I receive my payment?

We understand the importance of these payments and have developed a process to ensure a thorough review, while moving as quickly as possible. Payments will be issued after all the applications have been reviewed. Canada Post anticipates that payments will be processed in 2021.

Groups of individuals were made aware of this resolution process in separate waves and as such, deadlines for submitting an application differ from group to group. After the application period for all groups has closed, Canada Post and the CPAA will review the submissions in order to calculate individual payments. Only after this process is complete can Canada Post begin to issue payments to individuals. 

Many members have expressed concerns about the timelines in the pay equity application process.

Please note that your union was able to get the Corporation to accept returned letters after the December 16th date. We encourage you to get your letter date-stamped by December 16th and recommend you send everything by Xpresspost.
