The Union is supposed to be there to protect the workers from various job hazards. Among these hazards are things like health and safety concerns, lousy pay, poor benefits, poor job security and various kinds of abuse.
That's what I expect unions to do, whether I agree with them or not.
I do not expect unions to protect and cover up for workers who are abusing other workers.
Call me crazy, but I thought that the union's job was to protect the victims, not the abusers.
Maybe they're a little confused.
They're so confused, in fact, that the employers have stepped in and filed a Human Rights complaint against the Union.
I mean, wow.
That's like Stephen Harper calling you on your sick day just to make sure you're not out on a golf course.
