The Canadian Union of Postal Workers CUPW ; French : Syndicat des travailleurs et travailleuses des postes is a public sector trade union representing postal workers including letter carriers, rural and suburban mail carriers,  postal clerks, mail handlers and dispatchers, technicians, mechanics and electricians employed at Canada Post as well as private sector workers outside Canada Post.

A collective agreement is a written legal contract that covers workers grouped together into a bargaining unit. The contract is reached through collective bargaining between the union and the employer. Collective agreements typically include wages and benefits. They also contain job descriptions and classifications as well as a dispute resolution process usually a grievance and arbitration procedure. Having a collective agreement in place goes a long way to protect workers from unfair treatment. It gives us a say in the workplace, allows us to improve our working conditions, and provides us with a fair way of raising and resolving workplace issues. All CUPW contracts guarantee specific wage entitlements, benefits and working conditions.
