Sure, but this hugely depends on their level of job security. In IT for example contractors (if they know what they are doing) are generally much more efficient then full time employees, because they HAVE to be.
If they are full time employees or government employees who have 0.1% of getting fired they WILL be lazy.
I know some IT projects in government took years, in private sector - months. All because people don't have/want to try harder..

Love the high level of ignorance and stupidity in this thread. Way to generalize horribly and think you know everything. Not every one but a good chunk of the folks here.

Personally I am against MOST unions. I however am part of one and help modify its policies. My wife is also dealing with unions as she is a CP employee and union rep, now to the people who say they are all lazy as hell.

Screw you.

Never mind the tactful response. Just screw you. Ive watched her come home blisters and gashes all over her hands and arms after a days work. I know alot of them aren't that dedicated to the job. Will also admit I get pissed at alot of them to with my packages. How ever the fact so many people say ALL union employees and CP employees are lazy and useless pisses me off.

Both her (CP)and I(Airline Security) work unionized jobs and I can guarantee you that we work our hands to the bone. Maybe its just our personal work ethic. Who knows. But no matter the reason what alot of you are saying is just plain untrue, rude and ignorant.

Both sides have had plenty of time to negotiate. I've got a bunch of items just sitting in a warehouse not moving anywhere this is ridiculous.

Outcast, while I agree that there can be good hardworking union employees, there are also a lot of incompetent/lazy people that are protected by the union, who would otherwise be long gone.

I was part of a union before I joined the CF, and can talk from experience. "Job security" is another way of saying "I can't get fired" because the union prevents the employer from firing anyone for anything but the most serious circumstances.

I agree to that, I have seen it where the union is too powerful, where people dont work, the company has to contract the work out so it gets done, and in a few years the pulp mill goes out of business and the people blame it on the strong Canadian dollar not being able to compete to other countries. (Happened in Prince Albert, SK)

However, I would like to point out the good in unions, there is a time and place where they are useful.

I work at Sandblasting and Painting place, without the union, our wages would be shit compared to what they are now, night and day to our competitor's wages. I am doing what a less than a high school's education, (sandblasting) making decent money, fair bit of labour.

I also would like to point out, not all unions protect the lazy, for example, when lay off season comes, we dont have a seniority clause, so anyone that is useless, gets laid off first wave, also our union doesnt speak out to prevent firing people, its the employer that wants to keep the useless around, cheap labour (it is if your new, starting wage is $14/hr) to do the basic stuff. (Ironically, the union tried to get someone fired, one guy punched another guy, (2nd fight) union wanted him fired, the employer wanted to keep him)


It is very easy for the employer to take advantage of its employees, the union just helps makes it fair.

I have to agree that some unions are decent. I like my union. If I don't work my butt off as an apprentice; I'll get fired or laid off, and have a hell of a time getting hired for anything under our union again. But goverment jobs seem to be a little different. Or so I'm told.

Back on topic...

So, when things do finally get moving again within CP after the legislation is eventually passed, anyone care to guess how long the back-log of items to be processed/delivered will be? Personally, I am hoping for a short delay.
