To His Excellency, Kevin HAMILTON, Canadian Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador to Romania

Your Excellency,

        Over the past two months, Canadian postal workers were on strike in order to force Canada Post, a federal public corporation, to negotiate new collective agreements. The membership must have solutions to their real problems: workplace injuries, forced overtime, and equality for women, among others. On November 27th, the Trudeau government saw fit to pass special legislation to force postal workers back to work.

      On behalf of the “Worker's Romania” Association NGO, which I represent here in Bucharest, I am addressing this letter to the Canadian Diplomatic Mission in order to denounce the undemocratic nature of "back-to-work legislation", which goes against the Canadian Charter of Human Rights.

       The Trudeau government has claimed to be committed to taking on climate change, and has committed vocally to other principles that our Canadian colleagues were bargaining for like work-life balance, health and safety, access to secure regular “middle-class” jobs, and equality for women workers. The “Worker's Romania” Association stands with the Canadian postal workers and politely asks the Trudeau government to observe their rights.

       We strongly believe that Canada is not Mr. Trump's USA, therefore, the Ottawa Government must solve the problems of postal workers without unreasonable delay.

        Moreover, postal workers undertake their activities, many times, in extreme whether conditions, yet another reason why they should be worthy of your regard and admiration because of the good qualities and capabilities that they bring to your country.

         I would therefore hope that now that I have placed my concerns in defense of my Canadian colleagues, the Trudeau administration will have a comprehensive approach to consider how our concerns can be addressed so that our Canadian colleagues can work safely in everyone’s interest.

        I look forward to your acknowledgement and taking this matter forward in a timely manner.

Yours sincerely,

Ciprian POP
Secretary General
Worker's Romania” Association
