LETTER – Canada Post doesn’t bargain in good faith

Dear editor,

Here’s a wild idea regarding the labour dispute at Canada Post.

How about the business community, and the large eCommerce companies such as Ebay and Amazon, put pressure on Canada Post Corporation to actually negotiate with its workers – as opposed to calling for back-to-work legislation?

Canada Post always has the knowledge that, sooner or later, back-to-work legislation will be introduced and it can just play around pretending to negotiate, as it has done for nearly the past year in this present case.

CPC has been profitable for 19 of the last 21 years and has paid dividends to the Canadian government of close to a billion dollars. There is no reason that those profits have to come at the expense of its workers’ health and well-being.
