Looks like those monkeys are at it again....

Don't ship anything canada post.  Hopefully this doesn't happen, but seems like its somewhat inevitable.

The province is gearing up for a potential strike by Canada Post.

In a media release sent Thursday afternoon, the province said, “In anticipation of a potential postal strike, the Manitoba government has arranged for government cheques and other essential mail to be available for pickup beginning Monday, June 20.”

Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers – the union representing more than 50,000 postal workers – are the midst of intensive contract negotiations. Canada Post filed for conciliation in early April, but negotiators have made little movement towards a new collective agreement.

About 6,000 rural postal workers have been without a contract since the end of December; the 48,000 or so urban workers have been without a contract since the end of January.

      It will never have enough power until I can spin all four wheels at the end of the straightaway in high gear.

          Tell me more.

          Our bargaining position is weak, our only strength is solidarity. That's the whole point of a union, and labour action.

            A more informative article if you actually want to try and understand the situation instead of laughing at "monkeys".

            The union says Canada Post is seeking concessions on many fronts including benefits, job security and pensions, including switching new hires to a defined contribution plan from the current defined benefit plan.
            I consider every deleted post a small victory.

              Thats cool.

              I see we still have select few who decide to "neg" for no apparent reason.   Glad to know maturity level here never changed.

                I think calling postal workers "monkeys" might have something to do with it.

                Glad to see you haven't changed, look forward to you rage quitting for the 4th(?) time.
