Abstract: During the last big postal strike, in 1987, Canada Post spent $190 million dollars in "extraordinary expenses" related to the strike, i.e. on trying to break the strike. This amount translates into about $4,000 for each unionized mail handler working for the corporation, or the equivalent of at 15 per cent raise for each worker.
