  1. It is probably very difficult for the U of T administration to admit that a certified, unionized segment of its employees is legitimate. I wish UTFA-USMC success in its pursuit of fairness and respect, but the truth is that St. Michael’s employees are being made an example of…”if you unionize, we will punish you.”
