Statement by President Rebeck on Liberal government's back-to-work legislation

Friday, November 23, 2018

General

The Manitoba Federation of Labour fully supports Canada’s postal workers and their right to strike. By legislating them back-to-work, the Trudeau Liberals are following in Stephen Harper’s footsteps and demonstrating that at the end of the day, they are on the side of the employer and not working people.

Postal workers have been on rotating strikes to demand equal pay and safer workplaces. But the Trudeau government is choosing to support management instead of allowing for a free and fair collective bargaining process. 

The right to collective bargaining is a Charter right, but this right is under attack by the federal government’s actions. Prime Minister Trudeau and his Liberals are no better than Stephen Harper when it comes to standing up for workers’ rights.
