In an attempt to bankrupt our nation and bust unions in the process, Canada Post will be replacing their fleet of vans, and instead of providing, or at least securing Canadian jobs; those vans will be made in Turkey.
CAW is furious, as we all should be.
WINDSOR, Ont. — Canada Post is replacing its aging leet of mostly urban light delivery vehicles with Ford Transit Connects made in Turkey, not the Windsor-made Chrysler minivan.IS THIS REALLY YOUR CANADA?
The decision was a final blow to an unsuccessful obbying effort by the Canadian Auto Workers and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers urging the post office to adopt a "buy Canadian" policy and to select the Chrysler minivan.
CAW Local 444 president Rick Laporte, who represents workers at the Windsor minivan plant, said he is outraged ... "It's mind-boggling to me that they would spend money on foreign manufactured goods when this country is struggling with its economy, and we're losing manufacturing jobs at an alarming rate."
