Excerpt from Essay:

In this light, he encouraged continued team work.

3. The UNITE union was the descendent of the old International Ladies and Garment Workers Union (ILGWU) ("Unite here historical,"). The union's campaign to accuse the company of unfair labour practices is based upon subtle, yet open statements by the company about selling or closing the company if the union were to win in its fight to win the right to bargain on behalf of SGA workers. The Ontario Labour Relations Act specifies that encouragement or discouragement of union membership by a company by discrimination in hiring or conditions of employment by an employer are illegal ("Unfair labor practice ," 2001). While the Union made such charges, there were no reported acts of discrimination based upon union affiliation. It is interesting that the union did not point to the lack of what in Canada are termed "visible minorities." At SGA, 40 percent of the employees were women and 35 percent of the total workforce were "visible minorities." In contrast, minorities and women made up less than two percent of the SGA management staff. Discrimination against "visible minorities" in hiring is illegal (Dingwall, & Chippindale, p. 7). Otherwise, the company's actions seem to be above board and would not require a response from the Labour Relations Board. Also, the union's actions appeared to be legal and would not require actions by the Labour Relations Board.
