LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Union’s concerns aren’t well founded

Oh, boo-hoo to CUPE. Need one say more?

To the editor,

Re: Union Workers boycott party hosted by city, Dec. 12.

Oh, boo-hoo to CUPE. Need one say more?

For CUPE to shake its fist and deny city workers to forego celebrating the season with others is pretty immature, and uncharitable, especially when no one is aware of the reason. Better to enjoy and share life’s pleasures and address concerns in a mature way; by discussion and agreement. It would also be helpful if the general public – who pay the bills anyway, be informed in place of disgruntled and behind-the-scenes behaviour, and disruption.

Maybe the time has come for taxpayer residents, and families, to be included in any concerns and decisions made. Certainly not to condone bullying tactics that some will enforce on employees, and us all.
