And the business is run by non-union workers. (external - login to view) Is anyone surprised?

Quote:

Many people see it as incongruent that you can be a member of the NDP and be involved in business," Sihota told Business in Vancouver between bites of salad while sitting at a corner booth in a Cactus Club restaurant.

"It's something that, both politically and personally, we struggle with, but it's never struck me as incongruent."

His hotel does not even have unionized workers. They turned down a certification vote, Sihota believes, because he pays them well and has fostered a corporate culture that's positive enough that there was no demand for a union.

"Unions tend to do well when employers don't treat their people well, and we don't have that problem," he said.

I just love stereotypes.

To those who seem to not understand Labour history, Unions were formed by employees who were being maltreated by their employers.

Appears this is not the case for this employer and the employees.

Treat then good, no Union, treat them ****ty, they will fight back the only way they can, by Unionizing...yes it's really that simple..........

Spoken like a true conservative. So unions, with their declining membership, are becoming less relevant.

BUT ... if he was a true socialist, he would make them pay union dues, because that's been the labor position on the right-to-work controversy.

Funny. When the dippers were mismanaging BC slimy sihota was right up there demanding that all government projects be union only. Course like all his cronies his position can be bought.

Slimy Sihota also built a small strip mall in Courtney with non union labour.

Making the employees get union cards would require them to prove the right to work in Canada.
