Stealing Drunk

An employee steals.

He is caught and he is fired.


Apparently not.

Not if you are a member of the BCGEU, who have now involved the Human Rights Tribunal and several court systems in their defense of the indefensible.

It is true that we have come a long way to understanding and helping alcoholics.

Today, an addict will get opportunities from his or her employer to clean up long before the pink slip option emerges.

But what's that got to do with stealing?

Being a drunk has long since been removed from our court systems as an excuse for criminal behaviour.

The BCGEU needs find more worthy fights to fight.
