B.C. Ferries top-heavy with management

Too many cooks, not enough bottle washers at Crown corporation

There is a lot of talk about cutting sailings and raising fares by B.C. Ferries, but nothing about looking at cutting costs at their head office.

There are too many vice-presidents and a huge public relations department that is totally unnecessary. Tourists can get all the info they need from the website or a travel agent.

Frankly the highly trained and professional union employees could run the ferries without the interference of people at head office, many of whom have no experience in the field and frequently come up with plans that leave employees scratching their heads in amazement.

Do the research and I am sure you will be shocked by how many highly paid and, in my opinion, useless executives there are.
