Supporting The Right To Strike
Since winning a majority government government in the spring, the Conservative government has twice intervened in labour disputes to end or prevent work stoppages. First it was the post office, now Air Canada. Personally I support the right of workers to strike, just as I support the right of the employer to hire replacement workers. Let them strike and allow them to exercise their democratic right to walk away from their jobs. Then hire new workers at a significantly lower price to replace them. The "essential service" continues and we don't deny the workers their right to strike. Let the collective bargaining process take as many years as needed to reach a fair contract. Problem solved.
