Wow, the Free Press managed to get something at least half right.
Usually companies hire replacement workers quietly, knowing it's frowned upon by even the most lukewarm union supporter and knowing it exacerbates ill will between union and management.
Not Safeway. They took out quarter-page ads and held a job fair at a Polo Park hotel.
Anyway, that all begs the question - why does an NDP government led by the former boss of one of the province's most powerful unions not have anti-scab legislation?
Good question, especially when a major employer is preparing for a strike by hiring scabs.
I guess the answer to that would be that the government listens more to the business community than it does to labour and community groups.
