A new Abacus Research poll ... has found 60% of Canadians ... say they supported this month's federal back-to-work legislation for Canada Post and Air Canada employees.
Pollster David Coletto says he's rarely seen public opinion line up so strongly with a decision by the government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
Majorities in every province supported the back-to-work bills. At 68% in favour of the legislation, Ontario stood out as the most anti-union province in the poll.
Perhaps surprisingly, even though the NDP led the filibuster in the House of Commons against the Canada Post back-to-work bill, only 44% of New Democrat voters said they opposed the bill, while 43% supported it."
Wake up to reality.

People who aren't supportive of unions are only shooting themselves in the foot. Employers use union wages as a yardstick on what to pay their non-union employees, and while people can argue that they get less because of it, it's also true that driving down the union wages will ENSURE you get EVEN LESS....people need to wake up.
The super rich WANT people attacking unions as overpaid, because it keeps the middle class and lower income groups too busy to band together and question why Harper won't take the GST off gas prices, despite the HUGE inflation caused by skyrocketing pump charges.
Be happy you have your mail coming...use it to write your MP and ask for the GST to be removed, provincially and federally, because commodity speculators are causing gas to not reflect demand..the price of a barrel doesn't justify our current prices.

This does no credit to the members of these unions and should serve as a warning to other unions.
The world is changing and the way the unions operate has not.
Public sector unions are beneath contempt.
