Bill to legislate end to Canada Post dispute could pass as early as Thursday


Labour activists rallied in downtown Toronto on Wednesday to protest the federal government’s move to legislate an end to the dispute between Canada Post and its locked-out workers. Hundreds of people have gathered at the intersection of Yonge and Dundas, one of the busiest in the city. Meanwhile, negotiations continue between Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers after going late into the night on Tuesday. Parliamentarians are expected to vote on the Conservative back-to-work bill this Thursday. The legislation would force the union to accept a deal that’s worse than the one currently on offer from Canada Post management.
