Postal workers across the country returned to work yesterday at noon after being legislated back to work by the federal government on Monday.
"Anytime that you have a back to work legislation, it's difficult on both sides," shared Jackie Wall, Executive Director for Estevan's Chamber of Commerce. "Bargaining is difficult on both sides."
"We are heading into the Christmas season so that is an issue as well."
Wall acknowledged that there have been a lot of challenges in the postal service industry that they are trying to deal with.
"You never like to see back to work legislation. You really like to see the bargaining process continue and be successful but sometimes, that doesn't always happen. It is a last resort and it's unfortunate to see."
