2020-05-16 UPDATE My complaint to Twitter over my union UNIFOR, Global News Saskatchewan use of the derogatory word 'scab' in thier news story to describe replacement workers at co-op refinery was deemed a violation of twitter rules.
Edmonton's 1986 Gainers strike got ugly & violent on the picket lines over wages & pensions. My 40- minute sketch study of Mary Joyce's "Thou shall not", currently on display inside the Art Gallery of Alberta.
I've been openly critical on Twitter of my union, Unifor, and Global News Regina Unifor reporters using the derogatory word "Scabs" when reporting on workers who cross the picket lines. Unifor began doxing replacement workers on social media in a video titled "Meet The Scabs", revealing names and photos of faces. Unifor removed the video from Twitter after they mistakenly featured a Regina business owner as one of the Co-op scabs. The best things in life are negotiable, or at least I thought that was the case with modern day unions. The Unifor Co-Op strike has been nothing but thuggish behavior by a bunch of bullies. Whatever happened to the love, respect and civility we are taught to show towards our neighbours? Today I'm truly ashamed of my Unifor Union's bad behavior...
Edmonton UNIFOR members stage protest against the Government of Alberta and unifor unionized reporters and camera people report on it. Bernard Hancock 'the Roughneck' responds.
