Wade Ritchie back in the news

It seems as if Wade Ritchie is back in the news. According to the the City lawyers at the Labour Board hearings Wade threatened Terry Parlow that if he would have applied for the lieutenants job within the department he would be punished by the union.  
What kind of union president doesn't want its member to advance in their career? A bad one I would say.  
The defense is that Wade was acting as a union rep and not an employee so that is basically him admitting to the threats.  
Is this acceptable behaviour and would you want someone who threatens other employees, whether as an employee or a union rep, on the job?

Ritchie case

Just because this is still an ongoing hearing, I'd appreciate if we waited until the results of the hearing and final decision are made public so that we can have this discussion with as many of the facts as possible. thanks!

it makes no sense why a union rep would threaten someone if they applied for a job?
