Canada Post created a workplace crisis which has been brewing for some time. Workers are overloaded and disrespected, and despite being treated as objects and machines, we have continued to provide a high-quality service for everyone across the country. But we all have limits. Our work ethic can no longer be a license to take advantage of us. Things must change. Things must improve. The time is now.
Overburdening has become for many, an ongoing nightmare, taxing our bodies and minds. It has affected the time we have to see our families and caused conflicts at home and with each other. Exhaustion, sleeplessness, and stress should not be by-products for performing a good service. There is another way, a better way.
