Arbutus Club member's trash drew CUPE pickets Saturday August 18th. Pickets were legitimate as the private club's 115 non-management staff are CAW (Canadian Auto Workers) members.
Leave it to the CUPE members present, which included a CUPE 15 negotiator, to take what should have been an information picket and instead create a case study on "How to Bully." Better yet do it while news crews are filming and be seen bullying across Canada every hour on NewsNet and locally all weekend on CTV and Global.
The appropriate steps would have been to coordinate with the CAW and set up a picket line prior the Arbutus Club's opening. CAW members would have respected the line and club managers would be left explaining why the club was closed to their $40,000.00/year members.
The result would have been this 40 second story -
instead of this 2:22 minute case study on bullying.
More to come on this story.
