Dear Editor, I was reading the weekend paper today and I couldn't believe it! Metrobus manager Judy Powell is offering to sell discount taxi vouchers to the public....and yes I will be taking advantage of this because I can not afford NOT to. However, I do not agree to her using such tactics! Then again in my opinion she is using the money she is saving, basically metrobus employees wages to do this. There should be new management put in place and also a new union rep. Because all this is boiling down to is utter childlishness. Grow up and get some mature individuals at the bargaining table!!!! And maybe even a new mayor while you're at it!

From an outsiders perspective, it appears that Vale HAS been "generous towards its employees"...and, that instead of being "victims", those who "have gone more than 17 months earning a pittance as picketers in front of the main gates of 5 Wing Goose Bay" are those doing the victimizing; they could be working IF THEY WANTED TO!!! (BTW, "earning a pittance"????? In what sense do those being intransigent and obtuse in our society "earn" anything...other than the scorn of those who actually DO "earn" their way?) Look, if the strikers don't want to work for what's being offered - and others do - then let that be it. Why victimize those who ARE willing to work? In others words, get out of the way of the TRUE workers, and let them WORK...permanently is such is their choice.

Vale's only goal is to break the Union and to set back Lbour Relations 50 years.
