Canada Post workers allege OT claims punished
Canada Post redesigned many of its delivery routes and procedures just over a year ago and now some Canada Post employees say they’re being punished for claiming overtime pay when they work extra hours.
Some workers say their new duties can’t be completed in a regular eight-hour workday and they feel pressured to do the extra work for no pay.
Postal worker Mars Bazrafshan said many of his colleagues have given up claiming overtime.
“There are lots of people that will work due to they have mortgages to pay, they have loans, they just want to keep quiet. Let’s just go do the work … extra work without pay, yeah, they do that,” he said.
