They are so far out of touch that negotiation is pointless.
CP is talking about cutting the workforce, in half if they can .. and the union is asking for more money.. it's laughable.
CUPW is a stinking corpse left un-buried far too long.
They have no idea the DHL is sniffing around to buy the whole thing..
That's just it. I mean seriously, who uses the mail today? Apart from paper bills (which many companies are phasing out in favor of e-billing), I get nothing but list-based ad-mail from people like Enersource or other utilities which are bound contractually to use CPC in order to keep their government grants.
My dad got rich off direct mail / direct marketting. Then he lost all that wealth when the internet made it obsolete. CPC is losing piles of money in wages, benefits and pensions, keeping jobs because the Union has threatened to strike if they cut them. Well guess what, out you go, in comes a fancy new machine.
