Politics and Unions

Very interesting claims in an article today about the CAW (Canadian Auto Workers) union. Both the current president (Buzz Hargrove) and secretary-treasurer (Jim O’Neill) are retiring. There have been claims that there is a lot of internal pressure to choose a specific person to replace Buzz. Mr. Hargrove has claimed that he has not announced who he is supporting.

There have been complaints of staff being bullied, threatened or coerced into making a decision. Some staff members, who spoke on condition they not be identified, said they have been told by senior union officials to vote for a specific person.

Politics and Unions. A good combination.
