Slag is a term for trash or junk that has become a hot-button issue for a range of industries, including the oil and gas sector.
Some companies, such as General Electric, have been slagging other companies on social media.
In August, General Electric announced it was cutting 30,000 jobs, including about 10,000 in Canada.
On Twitter, a company called “Slag” has also been used to describe a large company’s slagging on social networks.
In response to the backlash, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) called for an industrywide campaign to ban the use of the term, which is not banned by any state.
(CBC) On Wednesday, the union called for a nationwide campaign against slagging companies.
“The term is being used to dehumanize the public sector and has a detrimental impact on the public trust,” said CUPE Canada president and CEO Mike Bains.
“We want to make sure that our members understand that it’s not okay for companies to use that language, to dehumanise the public.”
The hashtag #slaggrams, for instance, has been trending on Twitter since August, when it was tweeted by an employee of an oil company.
On Wednesday the hashtag was used to share information about the company’s “slagging” practices.
On social media, the term was used by employees of a Calgary-based company as a term of abuse.
“There is an increased amount of harassment coming from the oil industry,” said Chris O’Brien, president of the Alberta Public Service Employees Union.
“If you look at some of the tweets that were sent over the past few weeks, I’m guessing it’s the same type of language that people are using in other industries.”
The Calgary-area company, Energy Alberta, was one of the companies targeted by Twitter users.
It responded with an apology, but many other companies are using it to refer to employees.
Bains said the term should be restricted to employees and not to social media platforms.
“I think we’re really at a point where the language that is being slagged is being applied to public sector employees,” he said.
“It’s also being applied, as I said, to other sectors of our economy.”
A spokesperson for the company said it is trying to use its Twitter account to “reflect on and understand the comments.”
Officer Michael Slager, the former NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner and was acquitted of manslaughter in Garner’s death, has been given the highest honor by the city’s police union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.
The honor will be presented to him by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, the union said.
In an email to the union, Slager’s attorney said the award was meant to honor “the sacrifices of those who have served in the NYPD and other law enforcement agencies.”
Slager, who was fired by the NYPD in 2013, was charged in a 2016 shooting of an unarmed Black man that resulted in the death of 18-year-old Eric Garner.
A grand jury declined to indict Slager on the murder charges, which were dropped in August 2018.
Slager is serving a 25-year prison sentence for manslaughter in the shooting.
Slag Slag, a nickname for trash, is a term used to describe police brutality.
Slog Slag is the name of a Staten Island street gang and a reference to a phrase that the group used on social media to refer to officers who used excessive force, which was used in Garner and other cases.
Slag Slog, a term that the gang uses to describe officers who use excessive force.
“This award is an affirmation of the hard work and sacrifice that these police officers have put in,” Patrolmen-Berea President James O’Neill said in a statement.
“The department is working diligently to reform its internal affairs procedures and improve accountability and oversight to ensure the highest standards of conduct and fairness are met.”
Slager was a sergeant at the time of the incident in 2014, and was later demoted to patrol sergeant, which is a rank higher than sergeant.
Slags name was posted online in September and then became part of a national conversation about how to handle the controversial term.
The term is used to refer the use of force by police.
Slagers father, Michael Slagers, who is black, has said the term is not appropriate and that it should be replaced by “just police.”
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said on Tuesday that Slager would be honored by the union for his contributions to the department.
Slaga’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
