And I'd Guess Our Union Dues ....

I was welcomed back to campus today with a mass e-mail from our faculty union:

...The Media Guild has requested that all CAUT and OCUFA member associations (we are in both) and their constituents refuse to give interviews or otherwise participate in CBC-related events until the dispute is ended and the CBC staff are able to resume their work.

As you are aware, members of the Media Guild have been locked out by CBC management. UWOFA has twice proposed negotiating goals, ratified by the membership, that would entitle its members not to cross picket lines. As colleagues in a union, we should each honour the request of the Media Guild.
But... but.... but... I love the CBC the way it is! More Music! Less Talk!
