Canada Post Back-To-Work Legislation Introduced To End CUPW Strike

"Here to legislate injuries and unpaid work just like Harper", read one.

The Canadian government has introduced legislation that would end Canada Post's ongoing labour dispute and rotating strikes across the country.

"The mail was moving, and people know it", he said. "No matter what, you have to be prepared to fight for your constitutional right for free collective bargaining", reads a statement from CUPW. He said the union's legal team will review the legislation.

Bill C-89 passed the first two readings in the Senate on Saturday afternoon and is now being considered in detail by the committee of the whole.

MPs have begun debate on the motion, which will be followed by debate on the bill itself if a resolution is not reached in the labour dispute.

"We are not debating this legislation today because we still believe that Canada Post and CUPW can get a deal".

"This is a really busy time of year, people are relying on Canada Post to deliver packages, small and medium-size businesses are relying on Canada Post to have a profitable season, and our economy needs Canada Post to be able to function in a smooth way", said Hajdu. It was challenged in court and found five years later to be unconstitutional, though Hajdu defends this new bill as taking a different, more "fair and balanced" approach.

On Wednesday, NDP Parliamentary Leader Guy Caron accused the government of bowing to the demands of e-commerce web giants like Amazon and eBay.

In Canada, workers began striking earlier last month after almost a year of negotiations failed to produce agreement.

Meanwhile, the federal government is trying to push a back-to-work bill through the Commons.

"We have taken every effort over a long period of time to assist these parties to come to a negotiated agreement", she said.

The Liberal government did not come to the decision lightly, Hajdu told the Commons after tabling the bill, along with a concurrent motion to fast-track the legislation if necessary.
