TORIES TABLE BACK-TOWORK MAIL BILL

PLASTIC CASH UNVEILED IN OTTAWA

OTTAWA (Canadian Press)

The Conservative government brandished the sword of back-towork legislation for the second time in a week yesterday, this time to force an end to the Canada Post lockout. Threatening to have an arbitrator decide whose deal is better may help break the impasse in talks between the two sides, as it appeared to do for Air Canada last week. But critics say the move sends a dangerous message and will make people afraid to join unions or strike. “It is very much a shift and it is really putting management interests, whether they are government or private, ahead of employees,” said Laurel Sefton MacDowell, a labour relations historian at the University of Toronto. “It’s very disturbing.” Urban postal operations were suspended countrywide last Wednesday after nearly two weeks of rotating strikes by the union,

The Conservatives brought forward back-to-work legislation yesterday to force an end to the Canada Post lockout. and the two sides made no progress in their talks over the weekend. Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt introduced the bill after the daily question period. She said she hopes that it either passes before the Commons rises for the summer on Thursday or that the two sides work out their own solution before then. “Canadians want certainty, they want to know that their mail is going to continue to be delivered or start to be delivered once again, and that’s what we are here for,”

she told reporters. The job action had already cost Canada Post $100 million in lost revenue. The Crown corporation has said the main sticking point in the dispute is the union’s demand for staffing levels beyond the capability of Canada Post, adding that wages were not the key disagreement. The union has been emphasizing working conditions and safety issues, as well as arguing that new employees would receive inferior wages and pensions.

Get ready to have a little more plastic in your wallet. Starting in November, new polymer bank notes will start to replace paper-cotton bills that wear and tear more easily. The first bills to go plastic will be the $100 notes. The $50 notes will follow next March. The rest of the plastic money will be in circulation by the end of 2013. The polymer bank notes are more durable than paper money. The Bank of Canada expects the new bills to last 2.5 times longer than the paper ones. They’re also harder to fake than paper money. Some of the security features built into the new notes include raised ink, hidden numbers and metallic images in see-through windows. The bills feel smooth and slightly waxy. They don’t crumple easily, but they do crease when you try, and they don’t seem to tear in half. Bank of Canada officials say they’re confident the new notes won’t melt in the dryer or harden in the winter.
