Yup, CPC must be laughing at us, all these strike days they don’t have to pay us for and we’ll end up clearing the backlog for free.

Let’s see if the Liberals are our friends or they do indeed pull the back to work legislation card.
Plus they can use casuals whenever they want to clear the parcel backlog. Before it was done on overtime. CUPW is saving Canada Post while screwing its members.

Lets see what Trudeau does now. Is he for the working class still or only at election time?

Trudeau's promise in September 2015, when he said he would "work to restore mail service to Canadians who expect it to be a proper service from their government and not a profit-making enterprise."

Trudeau made the promise as he stood with Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, who just weeks earlier in a highly publicized stunt had taken a jackhammer to a concrete slab meant to hold one of the new community mailboxes.
"We undertake to restore door-to-door mail delivery," Trudeau added in French.

I agree we're under the bus...
But he has talked the talk before...Gotta have some hope people.
There are quite a few more quotes about Trudeau supports labour , fair bargaining etc. I wont bother.
Just remember all the broken promises when it comes to election time.

"We respect labour. We respect the need to come to terms at the bargaining table and that is what we are going to continue to work on.”

With the ot ban, can the union legally take the ot money away from you?

I heard they can garnish it, i haven't done ot for a while as I'm respecting their wishes, but it's going to hurt my pocket book.

Exactly what's happening at our plant.
All part-timers and casual get extended to 8hrs/day this week.

Took us only 3 days to catch up for half the money.

We were told today that they can remove your union affiliation and without that you can’t work at Canada post.

However, that doesn’t jive with what I was told in training.

Of course it won’t. That’s kind of the point.
It doesn’t matter to you what Trudeau does so why bother ‘remembering it’ as if that means something.
