    Panhandler hassled by phantom union - by Dave Rogers, CanWest News Service
    The Ottawa Panhandlers Union is affiliated with Industrial Workers of the World (also known as the Wobblies), a 100-year-old union that favours 'revolutionary industrial unionism and the abolition of capitalist wage slavery.'

    Sean McKenny, president of the Ottawa District Labour Council, said it is possible people who have heard of the panhandlers union are impersonating union organizers to extort money from panhandlers.
