The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) Canada stands with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) in their struggle to achieve a fair collective agreement. The outstanding issue of pay equity between the predominantly female rural suburban mail carriers (RSMC) and the predominantly male letter carriers is an issue that is close to the heart of the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists. Whereas the gender wage gap for racialized women in Canada is more than 37%. CBTU Canada believes that it is the duty of Canada's Labour movement to work towards bridging the gap. It is for that reason that we stand side by side with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers in their struggle to level the playing field as they work towards gender equity in the workplace.
