    OTTAWA, June 4 /CNW Telbec/ - "Canada Post is the second most dangerous
place to work in the federal sector," said Gayle Bossenberry, 1st vice
President of the CUPW, "and now Manulife is aggressively harassing sick and
injured workers to get them back to dangerous work before they fully recover."
    "They're sending us back to work quicker and sicker to improve their
bottom line," said Jane Marsh, President of the CUPW Toronto local. "They
contact our doctors without permission to collect private medical information.
They call us at home while we're still sick or injured and they've even tried
to get us to sign away our rights to medical privacy."
    "We'll talk to Manulife shareholders while they're healthy and at work
because we think calling them at their homes would be an inappropriate
violation of their privacy," said Marsh.
