Letter carrier claims to being harassed for being gay

Canada Post worker files five cases to combat bullying

One Canada Post worker in Quebec has spoken up about his experience with bullying at work, claiming he has been harassed because he is gay, according to a report.

Last year, one of his co-workers had written the worker’s name inside a drawing of a penis in the office bathroom, according to a CTV News report.

The worker’s desk and delivery truck were also defaced with the word "p-d," which is a derogatory term for gay men in French, according to the report. There was even a letter with the same that had been sent to his home.

The worker suffered through these for seven months. 

Overall, the worker has filed five official complaints with the head of operations at the post office on Bridge Street, with the Human Rights Commission and with the police, according to the CTV News report.

However, he still has no idea who was behind these actions.

For its part, Canada Post is investigating the situation. The employer has also taken steps to increase security at the Bridge Street office.

"We have a zero-tolerance policy toward inappropriate behaviour and discrimination of any kind in the workplace," Canada Post told CTV News. "When an incident occurs, or allegations are brought forward, we take them seriously and act on each one."
