The postal union will deliver a grievance to Canada Post if it refuses to pay for a delegation to attend a conference critics have slammed as anti-Israel.

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) has sent a five-person delegation to Porto Alegre, Brazil, for the World Social Forum's "Free Palestine" conference.

CUPW said it was funding the trip through a $200,000 international postal fund provided to the union by the Crown corporation under its collective agreement.
