Coin-Roller's Union on Patrol


The silliness of so much union politicking is exposed in this article. Speaking of the Telus dispute it states:

"Job security is the heart of the dispute. The union is fighting to preserve the positions of 375 employees, including janitors, caterers, carpenters, mechanics and, believe it or not, coin rollers - the folks who tend to the machines that roll coins collected in pay phones. The company wants to outsource these jobs, but has offered the incumbents the opportunity to train for other jobs that would, in most cases, pay the same money or better."

Hopefully the coin-rollers won't have the inconvenience of re-training.
