LIUNA accused of raiding two unions

Daily Commercial News
As 25,000 members of 12 locals in Labourers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) are set to strike Monday, the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) will convene a hearing the same day into the core of the dispute — attempts to raid 1,000 members of two other trade unions.

And while LIUNA provincial council business manager Patrick Little has called the Provincial Employer Bargaining Agency for the Labourers (PEBAL) “dysfunctional” and claiming “in fighting” within the group has triggered today’s strike deadline, two other union leaders and the Construction Labour Relations Association of Ontario (CLRAO) say there’s much more to the story.
