Thank freaking god. Labour disputes shouldn't be able to hijack a country like this. Off to the mailbox tomorrow.

You're right. Canada Post should have never been allowed to lock out all of its employees. The Prime Minister should have called that hack Deepak Chopra and told him to unlock the doors.

They locked the doors because people weren't sending mail. You know why they weren't sending the mail? Because of the rotating strikes. Volume had dropped precipitously.

Yeah. I heard Canada Post's lies on television and by reading the news. I don't believe mail dropped off as much as they claimed during the rotating strikes. Even if it had... they dropped off to ZERO when the doors were locked, so they only have themselves to blame for those lost revenues.

That's nice, but I don't recall your belief of something being a prerequisite for it's truth.

People just started sending stuff by purolator, which Canada Post owns, so in reality Canada post was not really losing much at all. Harper made sure to support the owners by stopping the slaves from being able to collectively bargain for their rights.

Sure...they were also sending it by Fedex, DHL, UPS (for some reason) and others. Canada Post in fact was losing significant money.

Well that's kind of the point of a strike isn't it? To make the owners realize that they need the workers? If striking didn't affect the company, what would be the point? This is what gives the workers leverage when collectively bargaining for better work conditions.

Care to further elaborate on your comparison of postal workers to slaves? :lol:

It is the message that the government is sending to all workers, not just the posties, that the owning class, will be favoured over the "working" class. They are basically telling the worker to go sit down at the back of the bus and shut the fawk up. Accept that your rulers make the rules and be happy for whatever scraps fall off their table. Do what you are told or be ready to live in one of the megaprisons we are building for the unruly. I hope that the workers of this country will unite and crush these assholes with a general strike.

This illustrates the problem of public sector unionization. The employer is not some fat-cat industrialist; it is us.

Right then we should put pressure on our representitives to bargain harder. In most of the cases I see where unions (both public and private) have achieved unreasonable pay or perks its because the employer didnt bargain hard enough when times were good... they didnt plan for the future.

Collective bargaining is supposed to be war. In this case the government represents the tax payers, and the unions represent the workers. Some of you are choosing to blame the unions for doing exactly what they are supposed to do. But guess what? Go look at any collective bargaining agreement and youll notice something interesting near the bottom of it... the signature of the employer.

And tell me, other than your belief in Chopra's word, what is your proof mail volume dropped significantly? And no, the fact you didn't get mail for two weeks doesn't count.

My mother works for Canada Post, and was on the conference calls twice a week. They literally had people standing around at the new Winnipeg sorting plant, because there was no mail to sort. Mail volumes were tiny in comparison to what they usually are.
