Catalyst Buys Sylvan Warehouse

Tim Thompson - Viewpoint:
One last thing to note, I'm certain that Catalyst believes Sylvan's workers are unionized but CLAC is not a recognized union by the CLC or the BC Fed. It is one of those so-called Rat Unions that we grew so fond of during the 94-95 labour dispute. Currently, in Local 592, we have a ban on visits to Sylvan, in large part because of how some of their workers responded to CEP organizing attempts in the past.

But, by taking jobs away from the mills and giving them to Sylvan, they are probably paying less in wages and salaries and pretty much guaranteeing labour peace because the workers there really aren't represented by a union.

Doesn't everybody just love this company we work for? And they say they like us. I'm not sure we could be treated much worse if they hated us.

Pulp Mill Survival Agreement.What a piece of crap.

Please Lord forgive them as they have sinned. I pray for them as they do not know how. The Provincial Council President in collusion with Dave Coles and Josh Coles have negotiated and supported an agreement between the CEP and JV Drivers Mill Installations. An agreement that undermines our present agreement that isn't even ratified. It not only puts our collective agreement in peril it also puts the inplant CEP locals future negotiations in peril.
The officers of Provincial Council are denaying their involement in this, however they have endorsed it and locals on Vancouver Island are supplying mebers to the contractor.

Call the office at (604) 437-0471 and demand that the BC Provincial Council resident officers condem this agreement.

What's worse, Doug or Dave?

Regards to who's worse DOUG or DAVE.
Why not have a poll. It looks like that the President of the BC Carpenters would rather do polls than hold executive meetings.

I say Dave is worse than Doug.

There once was a man(?) named Len.
Surrounded by unscruplous men.
Their visions of being free.
Was to sell out to the CEP.
Now the members have to fight again

Not content with fucking up the pulp and paper wage caucus, Coles turns his sites on the construction trades. The Saviour agreement makes CLAC agreements look good! Coles should be shot with a ball of his own shit.
