  • Four tips on using social media during bargaining and strikes | Canadian Association of Labour Media
    our members took job action in 2012 we searched Twitter during the strike days and prepared sample tweets to send to people who were upset about finding their business disrupted We sent a simple message just letting them know why we were on strike and linking to a page with more detail on our issues Most responded extremely positively Use your Facebook page insights to see which posts people react positively or negatively towards You can see post by post breakdowns of what your fans liked commented on shared or if you re concerned about negative feedback pinpoint what made them hide your posts or unlike your page Here are some other useful free tools for social media monitoring Make sure you re searching for your union name as well as any common misspellings the employer s name industry keywords and any slogans you or the employer s side is using Backtweets lets you search by link so you can see who is sharing your website content your employer s website content or relevant news articles on your dispute and what they re saying Tweetbeep runs like Google Alerts for Twitter Just pick your keywords and it will email you results of their mentions on Twitter free and paid options Socialmention runs a real time search on keywords on social media as well as blogs and microblogs like Tumblr sites and represents graphically the breakdown in public sentiment positive negative or neutral Tweetreach lets you search a Twitter account username a keyword or a specific tweet URL to see how far it has spread who the key influencers are on that topic what times of day it s been active and more Topsy Topsy runs similarly to socialmention and has a nicer interface and graphics but in my experience tends not to be as finely tuned You don t need to use all of them try them out and figure out which one best suits your needs 4 Handle Negative Commenters Quickly and Appropriately Any kind of bargaining or strike situation can cause tempers to flare and people to comment negatively on your social media Having a comments policy will not only let commenters know what is and isn t allowed on your page but it will also give you principles to use when deciding whether to delete respond to or ignore a negative comment There are three kinds of negative critical commenters classic trolls members of the public or your union with legitimate disagreements and people with a vested interested in opposing your union e g employers or their allies Classic trolls are those commenters whose primary purpose is to upset you Sometimes you can recognize them by their use of clearly fake user names and avatars if the commenter is a Twitter account with almost no followers and a fake picture chances are it s a troll More often you can recognize them by their hyperbolic and even outright offensive comments Classic trolls should always be ignored Twitter

  • Don’t want to get sued? Here are 10 things all labour activists should know about defamation | Canadian Association of Labour Media
    where other people control access To wit letters to the editor of major newspapers articles in major publications organizations official publications letters to employers or politicians or heated exchanges at public meetings Big publications have legal departments and are more likely to have editors who know what they are doing and this affords some protection The latter two examples come under the two traditional privilege defences for defamation that is circumstances in which defamatory statements may nevertheless be published because the publication is traditionally deemed to be a public good Don t press your luck but it s a fact that you also usually have more practical leeway to criticize a politician than say a businessman because there s a potential political cost to them if they sue you Defamation danger zones increasingly include blogs Twitter Facebook and other social media sites as word gets around to litigious individuals that defamation actions can be profitably pursued for comments in such forums Moreover commentary there tends to be cruder and angrier 4 Canada is not the United States Most of us would agree this is a generally good thing But in matters of defamation law Americans are at a significant advantage because of the longstanding commitment of the courts in that country to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited robust and wide open U S Supreme Court N Y Times vs Sullivan 1964 Many Canadians assume the law is the same here because they saw it on TV Alas this is simply not so Canadian defamation law does not effectively protect your Constitutional right to free expression It makes it hard for you to defend yourself if you are sued even if the plaintiff has a lousy case It makes it easy for the rich to shut you up 5 Know the key problems with Canadian defamation law Damages are assumed so the defendant must prove there was no damage done to the plaintiff s reputation not to be held liable The onus is on the defendant to prove there was no defamation Even if you are in the right defamation defences can be expensive A defamation case that goes to court could cost participants as much as 30 000 Damages awarded seldom exceed 30 000 The most effective traditional defences truth and fair comment both require that the underlying truth must be proved in court This can be hard 6 Know your defences and write with them in mind Well geeze this sounds gloomy But if you know the defences for defendants and write in a way that shows you understand them you will insulate yourself against many suits They are It s true and you can prove it in court so say how you know It s a reasonable comment based on something that s true and can be proved in court so explain the logic for your conclusion don t just assume it s obvious It was said in a legislature or a court

    injured in Afghanistan and discharged before qualifying for his pension Approximately 1 100 of the 6 200 soldiers discharged because of health conditions since 2009 left the military before serving the years required to collect a full pension according to documents obtained by CBC The Conservative government has vigorously defended the policy Tories revive anti union bill The Conservative government is making moves to revive and ram through an unconstitutional and draconian bill that would force unions to hand over basic financial information to the Labour Minister Just as the bill is about to be brought through the Senate again Conservative Senators are attempting to cut short debate so as to help whisk through bill C 377 through Senate skirting the scrutiny that caused the bill to be gutted last time it came in front of the upper house President of the Canadian Labour Congress Hassan Yussuff said this maneuver is not merely about pushing through C 377 but also C 525 which would make it harder for workers to join a union and easier to decertify it Hugh Segal the now retired Conservative Senator who was vocally critical about the bill said Bill 377 was badly drafted legislation flawed unconstitutional and technically incompetent when it was amended last time Unamended it has not now become perfect simply because one senator retired to do other things British Columbia settles with school teachers but more legal fights loom Even though the BC teachers strike was ended through a negotiated deal BC premier Christy Clark said the government will take the court case over the right to bargain class size and composition to the Supreme Court More than 31 000 B C teachers voted mid month on the tentative agreement with 86 per cent of them voting to accept the deal BCTF president Jim Iker said the deal wasn t perfect but said it did provide gains for teachers protect their charter rights and increase support for students The Globe and Mail reported on a secret meeting between the BC premier and the head of the BCTF with CLC President Hassan Yussuf acting as an intermediary that helped end the strike CETA negotiating text revealed The text of the Canada EU trade agreement the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement CETA was finally revealed with Harper staged a big celebration in Ottawa But last minute opposition from Germany could have serious consequences for the talks given that reopening it at this stage would mean the deal is effectively dead The deal according to the Council of Canadians grants more rights for corporations at the expense of citizens through a number of measures longer patents for big pharmaceutical companies forcing people to pay more for their medicine restrictions on municipal government provisions for local companies which will lead to less local jobs and a much feared clause that gives corporations the ability to challenge government regulations with lawsuits rolling back rules to protect environmental health and labour standards But opposition in Canada is building
