Here are some of the "progressive" groups supporting the NDP-Liberal-Bloc Coalition:
Canadian Labour Congress
Federation des travailleurs et travailleuses du Quebec
Service Employees International Union Canada
United Steelworkers Canada
Canadian Union of Public Employees
Canadian Auto Workers
Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada
Canadian Union of Postal Workers
National Union of Public and General Employees
Confederation des syndicates nationaux
Central des syndicates du Quebec
Public Service Alliance of Canada
International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers
What this means is that had the Coalition succeeded in grabbing power, big union bosses, as well as separatists, would have a say in how this country is run.
Now that's a scary thought.
Also I wonder if any union bosses actually consulted their rank and file before they decided to support the Coalition?
I doubt it.
And if national public opinion polls are anything to go by, I bet the majority of unionized employees oppose the Coalition just as the majority of Canadians do.
So much for democracy.
