Welcome et bienvenue to LegalEase: a monthly Montreal-based and produced radio show on 90.3 FM CKUT. We broadcast law broadly. Le collectif LegalEase est un group des etudiants et etudiantes en droit de la communaute montrealaise. This month the program is entitled, “On Strike!” Listen to it by clicking here.
First off, we head to the picket lines. Host Preeti Dhaliwal investigates the Fall 2011 MUNACA strike at McGill University. She canvasses opinions and gets a perspective on the strike based on the context of labour relations in Quebec.
In our second segment, Jesse Gutman presents a piece on Unions in North America. This documentary focuses on narratives of unions presented by labour and big business, especially surrounding labour strife in Wisconsin and Michigan in Spring 2011. Naomi Klein offers an application of her “Shock Doctrine” theory to unions, arguing that the powers-that-be are using the global economic crisis to crack down on organized labour.
Tune in live every second Friday of every month from 11h00-12h00 on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal or listen on-line at http://www.ckut.ca. For more programming, check us out at https://legaleaseckut.wordpress.com
