On this day in Canadian history (July 29, 1965), Postal workers in more than 30 cities ended the wildcat strike, after getting pay raises and improved working conditions. Their old union collapsed, and two new ones were formed.
Since 1965, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (previously Canadian Postal Employees Association) has been involved in approximately 19 major disputes over several complex issues. The “big strike” of July 1965 was one of the largest Canadian “wildcat” strikes and the largest involving government employees; it played an important role in gaining collective bargaining rights for civil servants.
On October 16, 1981 the post office became a Crown Corporation, something CUPW had been urging in the hopes that it would streamline negotiations by placing the union under the Canada Labour Code.

According to the Conference Board of Canada, energy investment will remain weak in 2019 due to a subdued outlook for oil prices. Meanwhile, energy exports are forecast to decline as weak investment and the Alberta government’s production cuts take their toll on future production. Outside of the energy sector, business investment is expected to see a modest pickup but will continue to underperform compared to many trading partners.
