The Association of Postal Officials of Canada is the bargaining unit certified by the Canada Industrial
Relations Board to represent those employees who supervise the processing and delivery of the mail,
the Commercial Sales Force, and employees who oversee the processes involved in moving Canada's mail.
We currently have approximately 3400 members in 28 branches across the country, with the largest
being Toronto (YORK) and the smallest being Prince Edward Island .
A.P.O.C. is a trade union with a very progressive approach to Labour Relations. We are strong
advocates of Alternate Dispute Resolution and Interest Based Negotiating as opposed to the
traditional adversarial methods.
Our organization is governed by the National Executive, which consists of 4 full time officers,
the National President, the National Vice President, and the National Secretary Treasurer, along
with 9 Divisional Vice Presidents, who also work in positions within Canada Post Corporation.
These positions are elected every three years at our National Convention.

As one of its basic Operating Principles, the Corporation has recognized the role of the
Association and this collective agreement (Agreement) in the overall success of the company.
The Corporation and the Association, in turn, recognize that the purpose of this Agreement is
to facilitate and protect the best interests of the Corporation and its employees alike.
To this end, it is necessary that the parties work together in a spirit of mutual trust and
cooperation and be committed to ensuring that interpersonal and industrial relations proceed
in a manner that ensures both the well-being of all employees and the efficient and economic
operation of the Corporation.
To achieve these goals, the parties recognize that:
1) Effective communication and sharing of information between the parties should take place
at each of the national, regional/divisional and local levels.
2) Resolution of differences between the parties is more effectively accomplished through
participative, consultative mechanisms rather than through recourse to the grievance procedure.
3) Effective communication between the Corporation, the Association and employees is
essential and should be encouraged and assisted.
4) The satisfaction and overall well-being of employees is essential to the efficient operation
of the Corporation.
5) The commercial viability and success of the Corporation is essential to both parties and each
employee of the Corporation.
