Mr. Speaker, the member said the exact opposite in 2011 when Conservatives introduced back-to-work legislation.
Mediation is futile if one of the parties is negotiating in bad faith. That party is Canada Post, and the Liberals are giving management even more power with this legislation.
This legislation restores the old working conditions, which were problematic in terms of health, safety and fairness. It is estimated that between now and Christmas, 315 workers will be seriously injured, rural mail carriers will work about 250,000 hours without pay and urban workers will do thousands of hours of forced overtime.
Will the progressive thinkers on the Liberal benches stand up and oppose this attack on workers?
