A very interesting pair of articles appeared on April 24th in Canadian HR Reporter magazine.. One of the writers mentions our humble wen forum, and the Telus TWU issue:
then again...Mortimer: Googling the Internet for more research on fines levied by other unions turns up the Telecommunications Workers Union (TWU). It is issuing fines to Alberta members who worked during last year’s Telus dispute. Thousands of union members crossed picket lines. Some fines are reported to be as high as $10,000 — even though its own constitution says fines are “not to exceed $1,000.”
Both points are posted below in seperate threads if anyone wants to comment. I tried to get these onto VFC... nothing, I am of course not allowed on.Mortimer…union-run trials that have been described by posters in a chat room on www.labourtalk.ca as a “kangaroo court,” where “no amount of argument can change [their] opinion.” One chat room member wisely cautioned those who are hijacked by the TWU tribunals to “avail themselves of the services of the lawyer.”
Are any VFC posters allowed to read here anymore? If so, I would love to hear what they have to say about fines over on TWU's VFC site.
