There's nothing, absolutely nothing that Stephen Harper abhors more than a little workplace democracy. When it comes to workers choosing to exercise their rights to democratic collective bargaining which, let's face it, includes the right to strike, Harper will have none of it.
CN Rail has received a 72-hour strike notice from the Teamsters' Union. Harper sock puppet and labour min, Kellie Lietch responded that Beelzebub is predictably 'concerned by the impact a possible strike will have on the Canadian economy."
Yes, Kellie, the right to strike is meaningless unless it carries an economic impact. That is part of democracy and at times it can be a little chaotic and cause a little dislocation but that's the price of having organized labour capable of collective bargaining.
So, Kellie, please - stop being such a fascist douchebag.
