No, most government workers are corrupt and lazy. They should be monitored 24/7 and fired if they aren't productive.

@97ZF849from Manitoba  answered…7 days

Most people don't have a nice cushy government job that pays fairly well and has every benefit know to man. If they don't like making 40K a year then maybe they should go work at a Wally Mart!

Government workers have a right to strike but their strike should not disrupt the flow of everyday living

Yes, but the protest should only last up to a few days if these services are critical for our country to function properly.

@94CXG6Gfrom Quebec  answered…3mos

Yes, strikes are part of freedom of speech but if the workers cover an essential service that is needed to run a country it should be no more than 1 or 2 weeks every 6 months or so.

@945C4M2from British Columbia  answered…4mos

Yes, but you've got to have the ability to break up a strike if it gets out of hand.

@93WL6VFfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

Yes, but only for non-essential services. Also, the services that are considered essential and non-essential need to be better defined so the system is not exploited.

@GizemNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…5mos

Yes, people should fullfill their needs about their work area, wage and rights

@93FG53Gfrom British Columbia  answered…6mos

Yes, as there are legitimate concerns that do need to be heard, but some industries are incredibly important and deliver life-saving treatment (nurses, doctors) so we also need to do something about that as well that is in the best interests of both.

i believe it depends and how severe it is. sometimes it’s all you can do to get your voice heard

@8XBN8N7People’s Partyfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

yes, but only because protests such as strikes are part of our rights as Canadians

@8WSP544New Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…1yr

They should be able to put a review that can be seen by the public so that a decision can be made by most people so that it suit everyone

This question is too ambiguous not all government workers are treated the same. Some have every right to strike and others have no right to complain about their jobs

@8VRD278from Alberta  answered…1yr

Depends on the situation, rules, and what they're trying to fight for.

@8VKGMPQfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

No. Government workers already get so much more than most and many don't work as hard as "regular" people.

@8VH2TZWConservativefrom Quebec  answered…1yr

No, Unions have too much power. There should be no such thing as a full time union employee. It forces them to justify their positions existence even when things are going well.

@8VC4CHCfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

@8VBTBZ5from Manitoba  answered…1yr

Yes, but only for non-essential services. Also not during any provincial or national holidays

@8V95QN2from Ontario  answered…1yr

@8V8PKZ6from Ontario  answered…1yr

There needs to be a way of negotiating put in place that works without the need to strike

@8V8DZDVNew Democraticfrom Ontario  answered…1yr

No, it should be an agreed upon algorithm based on a set percentage above living wage in the locality

@8V3LWHNfrom British Columbia  answered…1yr

Yes, you should be allowed to strike but not allowed to stop giving services if you’re an essential worker

@8TYWNDPNew Democraticfrom Alberta  answered…1yr

Yes. But need better mediators and labour courts to try to preempt strikes

@8TYSCT9Conservativefrom Manitoba  answered…1yr

@8TWGQ65New Democraticfrom Nova Scotia  answered…1yr

I think government workers should have some method of taking a stand but I am conflicted by the need for essential services to continue during these periods.
