Mail from the east may be delayed – Canada Post strike action hits close to home in Grande Prairie this morning. CUPW officials noted they would still fight back to work legislation.
“Postal workers are rightly dismayed and outraged,” said Mike Palecek, CUPW National President. “This law violates of our right to free collective bargaining under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”
“Postal workers will continue to defend our right to negotiate a settlement,” adds Palecek.
“We know that an arbitrated contract will only prolong our problems with injuries, inequality, and overwork. If the Trudeau government thought that passing this legislation would end the dispute, they’ve made a mistake.”
Fort St. John postal workers were on strike this morning, but have since gone back to work, say Canada Post officials.
