Rocky Mountaineer workers locked out

The Rocky Mountaineer caters for tourists on a scenic train ride from Vancouver to Calgary, Alberta via the Rockies.

The employees and their union Teamsters Local 31 are being shunned by the company.

It's really sad to see such obviously loyal staff - many have worked for the company for 15 years - being treated so appallingly.

To make matters worse the company has hired scab labour - which is illegal in British Columbia. Some of the "replacement workers" are management but there are also new hires.
