Picket duty

"When the Canadian Union of Postal Workers national headquarters learned that inside workers at the Bradford Post Office intended to return to work last Wednesday, the union ordered the Barrie local to picket the Bradford building. Five picketers paraded back and forth in front of the building for about three hours Wednesday morning while the Bradford workers set about sorting local mail inside. Barrie CUPW President, Dan Westwood, had hoped to talk the Bradford posties into staying off the job, but arrived an hour after the local workers went back."

Picketers strike Post Office

"Bradford's six inside postal workers will remain on the job until they and almost 22,000 other members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers across Canada have the chance to vote on the federal government's last contract offer, despite threats by the union that the Bradford local would be placed under trusteeship if posties remained on the job. Bradford's workers returned to their jobs last Wednesday morning at 6 a.m. but one hour later, there were five picketers outside the Barrie St. post office. The four men and one woman were members of the Barrie CUPW local and had been asked by the national office to picket the Bradford office following a telegram message from Bradford Union Steward, Bill Marks, to the national CUPW headquarters informing them that Bradford workers were going back."
