‘Last hurrah’

postal picket

Sam Odrowski

A group of local postal workers were out picketing this morning prior to the federal government’s legislation that forced them back to work at 11 a.m. today. Local union president Sandra Lange said this was their “last hurrah” before being forced back. The local staff are upset by the legislation and disappointed in the government. The two key issues that employees have been protesting are the overburdening of letter carriers and equal pay for equal work.
