Fredericton Posties set up child care. (Children, Youth & Family).

FREDERICTON -- The Preschool Centre sponsored by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers and the Union of Postal Communication Employees opened. The centre provides child care on site and offers satellite care at home.

Started with $200,000 initial funding by the two unions, the centre will be open to all but will give priority to CUPW and UPCE members' children, up to the age of 12.

To accommodate postal employees' shifts the centre's hours are from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm. Both unions have pledged to continue to support the maintenance of flexible hours as well as subsidizing members' costs.
