Change to Post Office Hours for Minstrel Island and Quatsino

Change to Post Office Hours for Minstrel Island and Quatsino

Canada Post Corporation-Change to Operating Hours for Ministral Island (Electoral Area A) and Quatsino Post Office (Electoral Area B)

Canada Labour Code break entitlement changes came into effect on September 1, 2019, requiring employers to provide all employees with at least one unpaid, 30-minute break for every five consecutive hours of work.

To ensure all Canada Post retail employees receive breaks they are entitled to, and that Canada Post is in compliance with both the Labour Code and the collective agreements with the unions representing our employees, we have been working on a comprehensive review of all employee schedules over the past year and a half.

The review was conducted with the full support of the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA) and the collaboration of all impacted employees. While the hours of some post offices have been adjusted, there is no reduction in service to the public and all the services currently available will remain in place.

Note that we are not asking employees to work longer without compensation. We are providing employees with a 30-minute unpaid break to comply with the Canada Labour Code.

As a result of this review, a change to the hours of operation for the following post office(s) is required to ensure compliance with the law and the Canada Labour Code. A notice to the public will be posted in the outlet window by September 1st. The new hours will be effective as of September 27, 2021.
