Apparently you know noting about the Liberal Party in BC, James. They are an amalgam of old So-Creds and federal Conservatives. They took over the provincial Liberal Party by signing up at riding associations in mass numbers, then nominating and electing their own people.

Nonsense, managers are not within the scope of the union.
And then there's the time a worker got drunk, and came to work with a shotgun to kill his boss. He was charged, and of course fired. The union field a grievance over it!!
If the worker asked for a grievance to be filed, or if there was evidence of wrongdoing on managements part, then the union is required to file a grievance under most union charters.
Sorry no1, i'm with Hank & Nascar on this one... these people are completely free to find a job elsewhere. Where do you get slavery from that?
Again, just go and look at our history. When corporations are allowed to act as they want, the people and the country suffers.

Union people do want to work. They also want to be paid a decent wage, be treated as people, not be exposed to unnecessary workplace dangers, and get reasonable benefits.
The claim that union workers do not want to work or are lazy is a myth perpetuated by those who would have us all working for a nickel an hour if they could.
