Liberal attacks against the rights of working men and women

Justin Trudeau's Liberals are defending workers in front of the cameras, but behind closed doors they attack a fundamental principle of the labor movement. 

As an employer, the NDP MP's provide a union office in the workplace to its employees in Ottawa. This is a common and normal practice under a good collective agreement.

But that is not what the Liberals think. For them, the NDP is trying to give an unfair advantage to a trade union organization at the public expense (they are not understanding working relations in an unionized context ...). They therefore complained to the Board of Internal Economy of the House of Commons, saying that the party used taxpayers' money to finance labour operations within our offices. "It seems very strange," even said Liberal Dominic Leblanc, apparently completely unaware of the reality of union members in the public and in the private sector.

Let's just say that it gives us a pretty clear preview of the liberal conception of workers rights...

  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: Now it seems the Liberals are following the lead of the Conservative government. That is to say, devalue the worker and remove workers rights and collective bargaining gains. Such things as health care, fairly negotiated wages and working conditions.
    This is what happens when a dictatorial government normalizes abuse, deceit and bullying. Soon all employers, managers and politicians fall into the same pattern.
    It’s time for a change!
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: Liberals work against the people and for the corporations.
    Never trust a Liberal under any circumstance.
    I denounce Liberal MP’s having publicly funded office space in Ottawa.
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: The Liberals betrayed thousands of Telus workers during the lockout a generation ago. They’ve done nothing to show they can be trusted by labour since.
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: We can see that both the liberals and the conservatives would be extremely happy to witness the demise of all unions. It is only to be expected that if any party supports workers and their unions, that they will try to skew reality and make unfounded accusations. The attack is always front page news. The reality is generally seen in a miniscule column buried in the most inconspicuous place in the paper. (Especially if the paper has a Liberal leaning) what is more disturbing is that the public, and even some union members, have forgotten what unions have contributed to the quality of life and job protection as well as needed benefits to the “little guy”. On the other hand, unions and their members must face reality and realize that at some point they must settle for less especially when their actions reflect negatively on the average worker. I am of course referring to the teachers drive for more money when they are already well paid (perhaps overpaid) in considering what other workers are being paid. Auto workers are another example of what I consider to be greed!

    A: Black cats (cons) or white cats (libs) are still cats. They eat mice like us.
    The Liberal (zombie) party is trying to rise from the dead.
    And organized labour bashing is a popular subject.

  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: I think the NDP and Liberals should quit fighting with each other and focus on the real enemy – Conservatives !!!
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: Liberals have no respect for labour rights
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: This and the fact that they support Harpers Bill C-51 shows the true colours of the Liberals…Blues in Red clothing.
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: I think “an union” is not good English (hire an editor!). Neither is “the NDP MP’s provide…”

    But these errors pale in comparison to the Liberals’ anti-union position.
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: I didn’t realize that employees of Parliamentarians were exempt from Charter Rights such as the right to organize and association. The Liberals must be aghast at the Supreme Court’s decision to support the RCMP in having a union of its own choice. Justin Trudeau should say if he supports free collective bargaining or not so trade union members will realize that Liberals have practiced for a century to master the art of talking out of both sides of their mouths.
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: I’ve always said there is no fundamental difference between the Liberals and Conservatives. They both share the same anti-working class ideology.

    The only real difference is that the Conservatives are open and forthright about their anti-worker agenda. The Liberals lie about theirs. The Liberals pretend to be our friends.

  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: Liberals and Justin are as bad as the cons and Steven Harper, they talk big in public, and go behind every chance they get to reduce and destroy the fundamental rights of workers, give away their jobs to other countries, some communist and USA rich corporations. To support either of these parties is selling out the rights of the people that built and care about Canada and their Provinces.
  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: I think Trudeau and the Liberals neither understand nor care about the fundamentals of representation in unionized workplace. Unions are the foundation of the middle class, how can you say you work for average Canadians without respecting that?

  • Q: What do you think about Liberals denouncing an union office for the NDP MPs' employees in Ottawa ?
    A: It just another attack against labour unions and workers.
    I didn’t want to think that the Liberals would stoop to that level. I expect it from the Conservatives with their agenda for corporations.
    It’s the old story about holding back working people.
    I think that everyone should have decent wages, full-time jobs, benefits and a pension to retire with dignity.

    Sadly, in today’s society it’s almost a thing of the past. Shame on the Liberals!
