No defence for strike breakers

Editor:

IKEA continues to try and defend using strike breakers in its attempt to break the union in this protracted seven month dispute.

As for the company saying strike breakers have a legal right to work whether or not they are actual union members and after repeatedly crossing a legal picket line is absurd. IKEA signed the collective agreement. It says, employees must be members of the union as a condition of work.

The union has removed these strike breakers, and scabs as members and as such, they no longer meet the conditions to be employed at this store. IKE continues to bargain with the union but not recognize it rights. I will not support IKEA by shopping there, maybe even after this dispute ends.
