Canada Post’s recent offer to stall rotating strikes until after the holiday season has been rejected by the Union of Canadian Postal Workers.
Yesterday morning, Canada Post proposed to delay the strikes until February while the two sides work on a deal with a governmnet-appointed mediator.
The carrier set a timeline of 5:00 yesterday evening on the deal, which also included a one thousand dollar bonus to each employee.
But the deadline came and went with no action from the Union, which claims they aren’t trying to harm the public, but rather fighting for appreciation.
According to the Union, the proposal asked their members to return to work during the busiest and most stressful time of year with no improvements to working conditions.
