You really don't get how this all works and what it all means do you? Your argument is invalid... because it's completely irrelevant. Thanks for sharing your view though. W0W

No you don't get it.

Prople are tired if your crappy caw union and now they do not want to deal with a merger of two usless unions. They do not want all the empty promises of how much better it will be when the two merge.

If Hudacks plan to kill union grips on workers ever passes watch how quick and how many of your rank and file bail on you!

And that sucking sound that followed would be the sound of every one of your rights as a working Canadian vanishing into thin air. After all according to you, we are all just useless warehouse workers, except, some of use can spell... and so much more

um, I can't find a webpage, or any info, on the web about this company Logistics In Motion. Anyone else?
What do you think is going to change when they come in?
The parent Company is Metro Supply Chain Group, look this up for information regarding Logistics in Motion. Logistics in Motion is the Company that took over Harmony Logistics which is now Aspect Logistics.

Sounds better than a $12 a hour dead end factory job with no pay raise, no benefits, no over time pay but base pay($12hr after 40 hr)! What's a little dry when you already got it from sand paper for over 5 years straight!
