"I feel that if [Prime Minister Justin] Trudeau actually sits down and negotiates with Canada Post and the union that we may be able to come to some kind of compromise regarding doing our own overtime on our own routes".

The ruling will adjust how much delivery employees in suburban and rural Canada (RSMC) are paid, said the corporation in a news release issued on Tuesday. If an agreement is not reached, however, a settlement could be imposed by the arbitrator. Canada Post said it expects pay equity will cost about $550 million by the end of 2018, of which $130 million was recorded by the end of 2017.

Its members have been on rotating strikes since October 22 after almost a year of labour negotiations. They're more likely to be female, and historically have been paid less, than their urban counterparts.

Royal assent is expected within the hour, allowing the legislation to go into force at noon Tuesday. "Despite all of this, limited progress was made, and we have exhausted our options", Hajdu said at the time. "There was a significant, growing economic harm to the country, small businesses were struggling, rural and remote communities were struggling. They were at a complete impasse".

But senators, after holding a special sitting Saturday to debate the bill, insisted on taking a little more time to reflect on the constitutionality of stripping postal workers of their right to strike.

While not all Conservative senators supported the bill, several of their colleagues slammed the Liberal government for failing to put an end to the strikes sooner.

In the coming days, the trade union will be calling on its allies and membership for a campaign of mobilizations, demonstrations and non-violent civil disobedience, Palecek said. The union claims it is fighting for "health and safety, equitable treatment, fair wages and working conditions and the democratic right to free collective bargaining".

"Postal workers are rightly dismayed and outraged", said CUPW national president Mike Palecek.

"We will fight it as long as we can", she said.

She also said it appoints an mediator-arbitrator to be chosen either through the consensus of the two parties or in an independent way through advice given to her.

In a statement issued Monday evening, the union says it's "exploring all options".

Despite backlash from CUPW, businesses have praised the move by the Liberals, saying ordering postal workers back to work will "help salvage the holiday season" for small businesses and consumers.

The walkouts have led to delays in mail and parcel deliveries from the Crown corporation's sorting facilities in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, leading to concerns ahead of the busy holiday season.
