metro edmontonThe UFCW wrote a letter to the leader of the Canadian Liberal Party whining about another party official’s criticism of the New Democratic Party’s decision to give the union office space inside  Parliament.

Two more union leaders are accusing Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau of hypocrisy on labour rights.

Unifor national president Jerry Dias and CLC president Hassan Yussuff have joined the chorus of union leaders who are furious that Liberals have criticized New Democrats for providing parliamentary office space to their staffers’ union local.

They’ve sent letters to Trudeau denouncing the Liberal move, following the lead of three other unions — the United Food and Commercial Workers, United Steelworkers and Canadian Union of Public Employees.

In his letter, Dias says Liberal House leader Dominic LeBlanc’s denunciation of the practice is “completely unacceptable” and leaves the impression that “workers’ rights can be disregarded in the cause of cheap political theatre.”

Earlier this week, LeBlanc called it “very bizarre” that the NDP are “using taxpayers’ money to fund their union operation out of their leader’s office.” The arrangement “completely blurred the lines” about the proper use of parliamentary resources, he said.

ufcw local 1500UFCW objects to Wegman’s entrance into the New York City market even though the grocery store chain has the best corporate reputation in the country according to a Harris poll.  Furthermore, it’s listed as one of the best companies to work for, and Consumer Reports says it’s the best grocery store in the country. In spite of all this, a UFCW boss had the following to say about the new store:

“After all, it’s about providing our Brooklyn community members with opportunities for stable and sustainable careers. Simply put, the company has no familiarity or understanding of providing good jobs and healthy food in New York City.

“The Brooklyn Navy Yard needed a responsible employer that our communities and families could count on to build a better Brooklyn. They needed a company that would help Brooklyn families attain the American Dream. What it didn’t need was yet another out of town transplant to move into its neighborhood again. Brooklyn deserved better.”
