Book Description

It is a popular misconception that most Canadian workers belong to a union.

In the year 2001, just over thirty percent of employees in this country were represented by 622 unions.

Unions are actively competing with each other for the right to represent the remaining seventy percent of the workforce (over eight million people!).

If your business was facing six hundred competitors, you would be concerned. You would find ways to protect your customer base.

A union is a business. You are their competition. Your employees are potential union customers.

The odds are your establishment will, at some point, face a union organising campaign. Your goal is for the union to be unsuccessful.


About the Author

Steward grew up in a staunch union household - both parents were union officers. His first job included union membership.

Since obtaining a Bachelor of Commerce degree (concentrating in Labour Relations), he has held Human Resources positions in the Public and Private sectors. Currently, he is a regional HR Manager with a national company that has successfully avoided many unionization attempts.

Having worked on both sides of the union/nonunion fence, he prefers working with creative managers that understand and appreciate their employees.

Steward Pickett is, quite possibly, a pseudonym.
