It looks like Canadians can breathe a sigh of relief – at least in the short term – as the union representing postal workers presented a new contract proposal Sunday and decided not to give the 72-hour notice required in order to strike. The union says that the new proposal covers all unresolved issues at the bargaining table, which include wages and benefits, staffing levels and working conditions. For its part, Canada Post will only say that negotiations are continuing and that the crown corporation is focused on reaching a settlement.
