Trade unions : good ? evil ? necessary ?

Written on 1:20 p.m. by Cynthia Quenneville

As a Labour Relations consultant, I hear different opinions about trade unions on a daily basis.

The views I hear the most are:

- Unions are necessary to give some power and resources to the employees when they have conflict with management

- Unions are out of date. With the labour codes and human rights being reinforced over the years, there is no longer a need for unions.

- Unions reduce productivity by raising wages and imposing restrictions in management's methods.

What is your idea about trade unions and their role in improving the workers' condition?

No, no, no, ladies and gents! The dance your grandparents remember from their young years is still well alive!

Very popular amongs university students of Montreal, it is part of what makes the city so vibrant in colours and energy.

Funwebcams explained by Jerrika (Registration, Rules, Functionning, Who to find there, etc.)

Only a few months ago, I was going through personal webpages and found that someone was a regular user of FWC...

FWC? It stands for FunWebCams

I had just bought a webcam the week before and I thought I might give it a shot and try it out since the information said it was FREE and I wanted to meet interesting people.

When I discovered FWC.... No, my life didn't change that much and I don't hold my head higher in public! This is not paid advertising... lol! But really, I was thrilled to find a chat room in which you can see the people you're talking to live on webcam.

The advantage it has versus MSN or Yahoo messenger is that you can enter a micro society of people with webcams and chat to them all at once!

Another thing I really appreciated, is that all the rooms are moderated. If someone wants to exhibit himself or herself on webcam, then every will applause but the requesting of any female to do things or get clothes off on her cam is not tolerated.

I recently created a French room, in which users are welcome to chat either in French or English and you can usually find me there!

Please if you try FWC, come say hello to me.... or....."bonjour"! Be careful though..... This chat program is addictive!

Hmmm.... What a total sadness! I personnally never thought Bush would be able to convince more than 50% of Americans to vote for him after his poor performance in the debates...

Here are other people who are just as sorry as me:
