VANCOUVER, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - The recent actions of the Ferry and Marine
Workers Union in resisting drug testing on "Privacy" grounds is bizarre,
especially when coupled by the wimpy lack of resolve on the part of The Ferry
Corporation Management to implement a testing program.
"The BC Ferry System, the largest in the world, has always been
considered part of the highway structure. Why then is the Government of BC not
stepping in to swiftly restore public confidence in this essential service?"
said CAC President Bruce Cran. "Both the Union and management should
understand that unless the public is reassured then every member of every crew
will be suspect," he added.
