Locked-out workers picket outside the Journal de Montréal on Tuesday

Le Soleil did the rounds of the provincial parties and found they’re not about to anger journalists in the Journal de Montréal labour dispute. The Parti Québécois and Québec solidaire are, as you might expect, solidly behind the union. The Liberals and ADQ are more on the fence, but aren’t going out of their way to grant interviews to scabs.

    Well at least this was one labour dispute that the media wasn’t able to spin out of control.

    It’s good that the politicians felt they had to take a side on this issue.

    I’m from a union in BC so it is always interesting to see what is happening in Quebec.
