What is the Communications and Consultation (C&C) Group?

Canada Post is exploring with stakeholders the options to address the challenges facing the Canada Post Pension Plan. The Communications and Consultation (C&C) Group will help to facilitate the exchange of information between the Corporation and the Plan members they represent. They will provide input on how best to communicate and consult with Plan members on these issues.

The C&C Group will be comprised of 12 representatives:

  • two representatives appointed by Canada Post,
  • five representatives appointed by the unions/associations representing Canada Post employees (one representative appointed by each of the five bargaining agents), and
  • five elected representatives (one representative for active defined benefit (DB) members of the Plan not represented by a bargaining agent and four representatives for all retirees, survivors and deferred DB members).

Why were elections held?

The elections allowed eligible Plan members to vote for the five elected representatives to the C&C Group:

  • one representative for the active DB members of the Plan not represented by a bargaining agent; and
  • four representatives for all retirees, survivors and deferred DB members.

How were the candidates determined?

The nomination period was the first step in the election. It began on December 8, 2014, and ended January 5, 2015. Eligible Plan members interested in representing their peers on the C&C Group identified themselves as candidates in the election during this period.

There were six candidates among the active DB members of the Plan not represented by a bargaining agent.

There were 36 candidates among the retirees, survivors and deferred Plan members. The votes and candidates were not separated based on their former unions, associations or groups.
