“If companies feel like they can’t get the deals they need here, they can shift production to other parts of the world,” he added.
The power of unions at the bargaining table has declined worldwide because of increased mobility and fewer labour restrictions in developing economies.
Let's use these strikes by unions to free the market. Somebody should start a open list that Canadians can genuinely sign up to. Who would work for CUPW's pre-strike contracts? Anyone? I wonder how many day's (hours?...minutes?) until 100 000 names were on the list. It's a shame the free market can't operate with our postal service. It would increase productivity and lower cost. It would humble the proud, and exalt the humble.
The contrast between the 'real business world' and the fairy tale world of the CUPW is striking, no really..it is.
Turn right and let's privatize the postal service.
