Ottawa Introduces Back-To-Work Legislation To End Canada Post Rotating Strikes

"We're going to be there until the legislation is hopefully rejected".

No labour disruptions occur as Canadian Union Postal Workers strike four-year deal with Canada Post.

"The mail was moving, and people know it", he said.

"We went to court and won this fight after the 2011 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.

A vote on the motion to speed the legislation through the Commons could come as early as Friday.

While Canada Post says there are hundreds of trailers filled with mail sitting idle because of the strike, the union says there are only upwards of 80 trailers worth of backlog, which could be dealt with in a couple days.

As the parliamentary scene unfolded on the Hill, out on the lawn Canada Post employees had gathered with signs, even a large crafted head of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Conservative government tables back-to-work bill on June 20th, stoppage ends on June 27th.

According to the website of Paul Cavalluzzo, the lawyer who handled the case, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice ruled in favour of the postal workers five years later, on April 28, 2016, finding the legislation unconstitutional because it violated the workers' freedom of association and expression as guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

"We have provided conciliation officers, appointed mediators and offered voluntary arbitration". "We wouldn't come down this road, (but) we have exhausted every option", she said.

The postal union has warned of a legal battle if the federal government passes the back-to-work legislation.

Hajdu dismissed that notion, saying she believed negotiated agreements are still possible.

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.

MPs from all parties weigh in on the labour dispute that has crippled Canada Post's ability to deliver Christmas packages.
