When he showed up at work, he was wearing an N95 mask.
"Right away a supervisor came up to me and told me I can't wear that mask," said Gallagher.
"I didn't really understand, I thought it was a joke at first, like 'Why can't I wear this when the ones you are providing are cloth.'".
He said he wasn't going to change his mask and started to sort his mail for the day.
The following day, Gallagher said he showed up wearing the same mask and was eventually told to leave after refusing to wear a company provided mask.
Gallagher, who said he was suspended without pay for the day he was sent home, said there are reasons why he wears an N95 mask compared to a cloth mask.
Gallagher has been told he can wear his mask outside of the Canada Post facility but he must wear the supplied mask in the facility. »
