This sounds a lot like a Stelco/Dofasco dynamic. In a modern context there is no reason to believe that a non-union operator would provide a lesser working environment for it's workers. I hope I'm proven wrong, but right now Councillor Green's motion reads like a pro/anti union ideological debate in the lead up to an election year in a very union supportive ward. The bigger picture for me is the long term viability of the LRT system. Who operates the system - union vs non-union seems like a relatively minor piece of the puzzle - but based on the current operation of the HSR, inserting the City of Hamilton into the equation as the operator of the LRT seems like a terrible idea.
