CANADA POST MAKES 'TIME-LIMITED' OFFER IN HOPES OF ENDING LABOUR DISPUTE

Just hours after eBay called on the federal government to legislate an end to the Canada Post labour dispute, the Crown corporation’s issued what it calls a ”time-limited” offer to its employees.
It’s reportedly a four-year offer that includes annual 2% wage increase, plus signing bonuses of up to $1,000 per employee, new job-security provisions, including for rural and suburban carriers and a $10-million health-and-safety fund.
In hopes of reaching a settlement before the holiday shopping rush begins, Canada Post says the offer will remain on the table until this Saturday at midnight.
As of this morning, the Crown corporation says there were over 260 trailers filled with parcels waiting to be unloaded at its Gateway facility in Mississauga.
Prime Minister Trudeau had warned late last week that the government would consider ”all options” to bring an end to the labour dispute if there was no significant progress in talks between the two sides.
