MONTREAL - Hundreds of unionized postal workers and their supporters marched to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Montreal office today hoping to push forward negotiations with Canada Post.
An official with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers says talks with the Crown corporation remain stalled on key issues such as pensions and wage parity.
The union says it wants the Liberal government to pressure Canada Post to negotiate in good faith with its workers.
Most of the protesters were from the Montreal area but others were bussed in from Ottawa and Quebec City.
The two sides have been negotiating since late 2015.
Canada Post withdrew a threat to lock out its workers in early July, saying it wanted to allow both parties to focus on negotiations.
