    This is Class War - Contributed by: eugene, Vive Le Canada
    It is time for the Labour Movement in Canada to grow a backbone and JUST SAY NO! to working with or obeying Labour Relations Boards and their rulings.

    In Alberta we have recently had rulings against unions, including a ruling on Finning which found that when it outsources its work to the rat union CLAC plant that this did not violate Labour Relations law. The fact that Jim Dinning who hopes to replace Ralph as Premier of Alberta is on the Finning Board probably influenced this decision against the IAM whose members are having their jobs contracted out.

    Truckers take on Teamsters - By Jeff Nagel, Black Press, Burnaby Newsleader, Canada
    The Vancouver Container Truck Association (VCTA) is mounting its own legal defence of unionized truckers, accusing their union reps of failing to fight company efforts to force them back to work.

    'The Teamsters have just rolled over and done nothing,' said Craig Paterson, lawyer for the VCTA.

    The umbrella group represents about 750 non-union independent truckers and 250 unionized truckers who belong to either Teamsters local 31 or the Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC).

    Those unionized truckers are the targets of at least three Labour Relations Board (LRB) rulings directing them to work in accordance with the terms of their collective agreements.
