Postal Workers on the road again in Southern Ontario

28 September 2015

OTTAWA – The Canadian Union of Postal Workers’ cross-country tour is swinging into Southern Ontario this week, encouraging people to fight back against the cuts to their postal service by voting out the Conservatives.

Among the planned stops will be Jeff Watson’s riding in Windsor, Ontario. “As Secretary to the Minister of Transport, Watson has been instrumental in attacking our money-making postal service,” said Mike Palecek, National President of CUPW, who will be aboard the Save Canada Post bus. “We hope he will be held accountable by his constituents.”
