Instead of busying themselves trying to stay relevant in the sunset industry that is snail-mail, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) is reaching out to pledge allegiance to a group that allegedly has links to terrorism.
A report in the Canadian Jewish News notes that in late May, CUPW revealed that it had launched a “joint project” with the Palestinian Postal Service Workers’ Union “designed to strengthen the Palestinian postal union and build greater solidarity between our two unions.”
But, to what end? And does this spirit of union solidarity extend to the Israeli postal workers union, too?
No, that “solidarity forever” claptrap only goes so far. CUPW signed-on to the boycott/divest/sanction movement against Israel years ago, so clearly not all postal unions are treated equally.
