"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."
