Recently a Canada Post letter carrier left this message on one of my recent blog entries.
"The corporate team incentive plan (cti) means more work and less money for letter carriers. We may not see a nickel of the bonus,since canada post sets arbitrary profit and revenue targets in 4 different parts of their business! With this new contract overtime will be limited to 3 hours a week over a 20 day work period. Check the numbers brothers and sisters we're getting shafted."
"Arbitrary targets" was also a concern of my mine. I sent my concerns to Canada Post President, Moya Greene. Here's how she answered me: "Targets have to be reasonably achievable or the whole purpose of a bonus becomes meaningless".
"Reasonably Achievable Targets" have resulted in millions of dollars of bonus money to APOC supervisors. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
Ms Greene has went on record with regards to profit and revenue targets. CUPW must hold her to her word.
An incentive program only provides an incentive if it actually pays out for real.
I believe in hard work and I believe that hard/smart work should be rewarded.
The debate on the tentative agreement continues on Cape Breton Local's website. Just about anybody who's anybody in CUPW is posting on this message board. Check it out.
