A crowd of approximately 50 staged a protest in front of the Canada Post Kenmount Road outlet in St. John's on Saturday afternoon.
Canada Post employees, striking Labatt workers, labour and union organizers and members of the general public were present for the protest, held in front of the main entrance of the Kenmount Road postal outlet.
A few brief remarks were made during the event, which lasted approximately 15 minutes. Those on hand were encouraged to sign a petition to be presented in the House of Commons in Ottawa.
Attendees were also given posters to place in their windows reading, "Canada Post … I'm For Door–To–Door."
