Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd. has filed a case in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against labour union Unifor, complaining that a group of picketers has been preventing vehicles from leaving its refinery in Prince George. Tidewater says that the pickets stem from a labour dispute in Saskatchewan that it has no part in. The company is seeking a court order that would prevent Unifor from blocking vehicles and from intimidating customers, among other things.
The allegations are contained in a notice of claim and related application filed at the Vancouver courthouse on Friday, Feb. 14. The defendants include Unifor president Jerry Dias as well as several other senior union members. Among them is Gavin McGarrigle, the union's western regional director. (If Mr. McGarrigle's name sounds familiar, it is because he was the union's public face during the recent labour dispute with bus drivers in Vancouver. He also campaigned heavily on behalf of B.C. Premier John Horgan.) Also named are several John Doe picketers.
