Statement on CUPW/Canada Post Work Stoppage

NDP MP Irene Mathyssen (London-Fanshawe) made the following statement on CUPW/Canada Post work stoppage.

While Canada Post remains deaf to the needs of those who deliver, CUPW is quite literally fighting for workers’ lives.

Postal Transformation is taking its toll on workers’ bodies, mental health and families. 

And despite the Harper Conservatives being deemed unconstitutional for imposing back to work legislation in 2011, this Prime Minister is threatening to do the same, all in the interests of greasing the wheels of commerce.

The cost is too high.

Why are black Friday profits more important than workers' lives?
