The president of the Unifor local, Paul Morse, a Hamilton Spectator reporter, has heard complaints from members, but not a scintilla of direct support.
He understands the principles of journalistic neutrality and objectivity, but he is also paid to protect the interests of his workers and he believes those interests would be hurt by a PC government.
The members he represents are not independent journalistic entrepreneurs, but they are paid to act independently. Nobody has ever sat down at a keyboard wondering what their union would think of their story.
The Kenneys and Clements and DeLoreys of the world are going to do what they’re going to do, but it’s no reason for everyone else to walk on eggshells.
