Unifor continues use of illegal blockades and disturbing videos
January 20, 2020
Unifor is illegally blockading the Co-op Refinery Complex’s entrance points and not allowing people or truck movement in or out. Unifor continues to use illegal blockades as a bullying tactic and has brought in extra people to help them do it. Today’s actions by Unifor represent yet another violation of the court injunction, and it's abundantly clear that Unifor has no respect for the rule of law.
In addition to illegal blockade tactics, Unifor released another disturbing and disgusting video regarding replacement workers. This time they have essentially engaged in spy tactics by using a telephoto lens to spy on individual workers as they do their jobs – this is a serious invasion of privacy. This so-called “Name the Scabs Video” once again demonstrates the depths that this Toronto-based union will stoop to.
