Federal court decision issued in Canada Post pay equity case
The Federal Court has released its decision in the Canada Post appeal of the Human Rights Tribunal decision in our pay equity complaint against the Corporation.
The Court has overturned the Tribunal's decision to award damages, supporting much of Canada Post's appeal.
PSAC is obviously very disappointed in the Court's decision; very disappointed for our current and former members who have had to wait so long to see justice done.
However, based on an initial review of the decision, we believe there are good grounds for the union to appeal this latest decision. The union is currently consulting with its legal counsel and a final decision will be made soon about filing a request for judicial review with the Federal Court of Appeal.
This case may now be into its 25th year but it is not over yet.
