Sheila Gurrie CIty Clerk Nanaimo ---- Conflict??

I recently posted an article in an attempt to educate Nanaimo taxpayers on the union/city relationship which has proven and is proving to be very costly for Nanaimo taxpayers. I am all for fair wages etc. but the contracts that CUPE 401 have been able to 'negotiate' with the city of Nanaimo are the richest in the region. Why?

The very idea that civil servants should hold unionized positions is beyond common sense, but that is a story for another day.

In response to the article a reader, 'Tim McGrath' posted a comment calling attention to what he sees as a perceived conflict of interest with the City Clerk and the head of CUPE 401. His concerns seem valid given the nature of the position of city clerk and the information they are privy to.

I have written the city clerk for a comment on the accusation and await reply.

McGrath's comment:
"
The City of Nanaimo and it's citizens have even a greater reason to be concerned - the city is in bed with the union - LITERALLY!

There is certainly a perceived CONFLICT of interest. It has been brought to the attention of the Mayor, but he hasn't even replied to the email.

The Legislative Services Dept Head is sleeping with the local Cupe 401 head! The head of Legislative Services has 100% access to all in camera as well as EVERY document in the city. Any strategic planning and discussion is available to Sheila Gurrie Legislative Head.

NB: for transparency, I am currently involved in a Attorney General case involving Legislative Head Gurrie."
