This about a time where the public has threatened a summer of discontent over the government mandating more days in the office. But where the union sees an impasse the employer the federal government says a strike is unnecessary. >> Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau: we recognize the hard work that they do every day keeping canada safe at our borders, but we also know that the best labour agreements happen at the bargaining table and that's where the ministers are focused. >> Reporter: the government says 90% of union members are designated as essential and must provide services in the event of a strike. The union says that the job action could leave people idling at international crossings for hours like in 2021 when they brought in work to rule measures.

So I'm keeping using it all the time. >> When I buy a bag like this I just reuse it until it rips. But I always thought it was recyclable. >> Reporter: he says according to one of the biggest recycling facilities in quebec these plastic bags cannot be recycled in quebec or even in canada. >> If you try to stretch it, it does not stretch.

They have to come at it independencely. They are not influenced by public or political opinion. They can decide is this proper competitive activity. >> Reporter: wayne mcday thinks that the bureau has an enough of a case to pursue this in the short term and the long term. He says it is possible that this could go down a path that results in increased competition and more affordable food prices.
