Jack Layton Will Stand Up For Postal Workers

"NDP will 'stand up' for postal workers in Parliament, Layton says".

Great. 

First, Jack, stand up for postal workers who are forced to pay CUPW union dues in order to work. Next, stand up for postal workers' rights to chose whether to continue to be shackled to a union stuck in destructive 19th century enmities.

Even better, Jack, stand up for the rights of ordinary Canadians who overwhelmingly think CUPW workers are pampered, over-paid and over-benefitted, and who are increasingly no longer willing to be held hostage by big unions.

Jack Layton will be standing up for Big Union, not postal workers.

"Jack Layton will stand up for the Union".

Couldn't agree more.

A good friend who's a Postie,is resigned to possibly losing his job as Canpost cuts services back.

The Unions are stuck in 1910, still fighting "the good fight",but not realizing that they won the fight years ago.

The Public Service Unions passed the private sector in benefits and pensions many years back,but to justify their existence,the Union bosses preach hatred of the "company". The Unions claim "worker's rights" for their members which have no basis in the reality of the working world.

Canadian taxpayers no longer support PS Unions,and Layton and the NDP are going to get a hard lesson in real world politics next election.

I hope you're right.
