Canada Post: Still lying after all these years
I was always shocked at the outright lies Canada Post got away with telling the media. Canada Post would say something absolutely false and the media would repeat it simply because Canada Post said it and there was absolutely no consequences whatsoever for lying to the media.
Evey round of contract negotiations Canada Post would send out a press release and say that horrible union has so many demands it would cost us millions of dollars to pay for all their demands. This round they are saying it again only that perpetual compulsive lie has become so absurd it is now offensive.
Canada Post is Demanding the employees take huge roll backs again. They already stole the employees severance pay. Now they want to steal their pensions and their sick leave. That is offensive. Someone in some office had the bright idea that if they did away with pensions and sick leave they would save a lot of money. So here's the math. Canada Post makes an absurd and offensive demand saying that they want to steal sick time, steal pensions and greatly roll back wages for new employees. They calculate how much money their roll backs could save then they tell the media that the Union's offer of maintaining the status quo will cost them $1.4 billion. Billion!?
The Union wants the status quo. The Corporation wants huge roll backs. The Union objects and Canada Post tries and makes it sound like the Union is asking for more things that will cost over a billion of dollars. That is an absurd lie and because it rationalizes their plan to steal sick leave and steal pensions it is an offensive lie.
