We will be looking at the facts and myths of construction during the raiding period in BC which starts from November 1 to December 31. I think this would be an interesting look into what CEP members money is spend on. I thank those that have been sending me information about this and would encourage those reading to send an e-mail with any facts to email@example.com.
CMAW likes to call it self an 'independent Canadian Union affiliated with the Communication Energy and Paperworkers Union ( CEP ). Let look at the FACTS.
First CMAW is not Independent. It is the Construction Arm of what some like to call CEP better know as the Forestry Union. In a March 11, 2009 press release the head of the Forestry union stated:
“CEP’s construction arm will work to change that, and we will also work to ensure that workers who are laid off in other sectors of the economy, can transition to construction, when skills permit,” says Dave Coles
If your independent the members on the executive board would be ONLY CMAW members.
