I am glad to see the postal strike is ending. I for one favour making posties "essential workers", as I feel the mail must go through. I am most greatful II my Member of Parliament, Laurie Hawn & the rest of Steve Harper's Conservative Majority ramming this back to work bill through. Canada Post employees are paid much better than ther counterparts in private courier company's. They need an education in the fact that the world isn't just Monday-Friday anymore & should be happy with their pay rates.
Students of business need to learn that the imposed settlement (although less than what Canada Post was offering) was fair & very much in line with other collective bargaining agreements. Unions should still have th right to exist & bargain, but I am glad the Government has broken the back of this CUPW union. They waste so much of their members dues on socialist, almost communistic pinko causes & their inflated salary's, its ludicrous!
