Canada Post and CUPW are now in legal position to initiate lockout/work stoppage
The Canadian Union of Postal Workers, which represents 50,000 employees, has issued a 72-hour strike notice. That means Canada Post workers could begin a rotating strike as early as Monday October 22, 2018. So what does this mean for you and your payments?
As a result of the uncertainty, IPA productions have been advised to make alternate arrangements for delivery of performer cheques until the situation becomes stable and commercial cheques will be held for pick-up at the ACTRA Toronto offices at 625 Church Street.
If you are expecting a cheque from an IPA production, check with the production first to see what alternate arrangements they may have made for pick-up/delivery.
As per the NCA, Section 26, Remittance of Payments, session payments are due 15 business days from date of production and Use payments are due 20 working days from first air date. Please call the office to find out if your cheque is here before coming to the office to pick it up. If you have authorized your agent to pick up your cheques, please check with them before calling or visiting the ACTRA office to enquire about NCA cheques.
NCA audition callback cheques will be held at first floor reception.
Please watch your inbox and this page for further updates as they become available.
