    Canada Post defends punishment for walkout - Globe and Mail
    Trail -- Canada Post is defending its stand on penalizing letter carriers for walking off the job in support of teachers Oct. 19.

    Spokesman Bob Taylor said workers who refused to cross picket lines that day will be suspended for five days and lose pay.

    'It was not a sanctioned event,' he said. '[Postal workers] have a contract to report for work.'
