Canada passed legislation to end over a month of rotating postal strikes in an effort to protect sales for online retailers through the holiday season. The Senate passed the bill on November 26, and it was signed by the country’s Governor General, meaning the order took effect at noon on November 27. Although Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Labor Minister Patty Hajdu encouraged Canada Post and union workers to come to an agreement on their own, the parties were unable to resolve their conflicts. The legislation calls for fines of up to CAD$1,000 (US$755) per day for employees who do not resume regular duties and extended the labor contract that expired before the strikes began.
