Documents released last week confirm previous assertions about the changing role of Alberta's Labour Relations Board (LRB). The documents in question, released by the privacy commissioner, clearly show that LRB managers actually wrote drafts of Bill 27, widely acknowledged as a fiercely anti-union piece of legislation, for the government.

Thanks to the cooperation of Alberta Labour, I lost 50% of the money Extra Foods (a Loblaws company) owed me in overtime pay. The scumbag broke my confidentiality and gave sensitive information to the company to help them screw me over. That was in the last century. I don't think things have gotten better since.

this is not news to Albertans. As far back as anyone can remember the LRB and the ombudspersons have never been accessable, compensations are long time coming, and the past administrations have always been anti-union.
