Milloy held to account on CAAT Part-time organizing
November 23, 2010 Further to our web item on the International Labour Organization report (http://opseu.org/news/press2010/nov-19-2010.htm), an exchange was recorded between NDP education critic Rosario Marchese and the Honourable John Milloy, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, at a recent budget estimate committee debate. Milloy is the minister responsible for the delays in the CAAT vote count.
“They’re using a loophole to permit colleges not to unionize, and I know why they’re doing it,” says Rosario to Milloy. “They’re doing it—and they tell me privately, because none of them dare say it publicly; they’re just not getting enough financial support.”
