Heard from a boots-on-the-ground mail carrier in Edmonton that her union had mandated that there would be no further overtime allocated until their dispute with the Corporation's management had been resolved.
The Corporation's response was to remove overtime permanently from the contract in dispute, and now have temporary workers dealing with the lagging and mounting workload.
That move by management was welcomed by some carriers, but incensed the postal union, that obviously doesn't like to concede and divert work away from its union members.
It seems this negotiation could be taking a nasty turn.
One can only wonder how long it will be before management locks out its workers.
Apparently, the main reason that a lockout hasn't already occurred is because the national media is currently portraying the workers in a favorable light.
The Globe and Mail is reporting that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has grown impatient with the current deadlock in negotitions and resulting strike action between Canada Post's management and the worker's union.
The G&M is reporting that the federal government is close to stepping in to resolve the issues and legislate Canada Post workers back to regular scheduled work again.
