Unions Discover Joys of Outsourcing

Unions Discover Joys of Outsourcing - Stephen Spruiell - The Corner on National Review Online

Just a thought here... could this not be a way out of the SEIU, CUPE and SGEU not striking because as the SEIU stated previously, 90% of their members have been deemed as essential under the essential services legislation passed in 2008.

I mean really, I hate to help out the unions in their fight against the evil, well, us. But just think, all they have to do is spend some money and they can picket without breaking the law.

Of course, the hypocrisy of non-union members being paid to picket would be an interesting sell to the general public, and this would ruin their plans of a general strike for the middle of next year, but still, it's a way to get the contract negotiations moving.

Of course, finding someone in Saskatchewan that is willing to picket for minimum wage would be problematic, what with the boom sucking up all available labour and forcing labour rates upwards, but that's not really the issue, is it?
