It’s no secret that the current government is not enacting “pro-labour” policies and that unions, one by one, are in the cross-hairs. Daily television, print, radio programs and social media postings are filled with stories about the government’s latest anti-labour initiative. Avoiding the turmoil is impossible – there’s a battle brewing. This is not the first time our union has faced this situation in our seventy plus year history. Nor, based on my 38 years of experience in the industry, will it be the last.
