The Globe and Mail's Simon Houpt writes:
"The union representing CBC employees is warning members about co-operating with an internal investigation of the Jian Ghomeshi affair, saying the information they provide could be used against them.
"In a memo issued to its members Monday morning, the Canadian Media Guild says that, while it is “strongly supportive of an independent investigation into this issue,” it is concerned that employees may not take certain steps to protect themselves if they choose to participate in the workplace probe led by lawyer Janice Rubin.
“'CBC has told us that Ms. Rubin will be recording her interviews. However, participants will not be allowed to make their own recordings, obtain a copy of Ms. Rubin’s recordings or a transcript of the interview until the investigation is completed and findings made,' says the memo, written by Marc-Philippe Laurin, president of the CMG’s CBC branch.
"In fact, Laurin writes, the union has been “informed Ms. Rubin’s recordings may however be provided to CBC management and relied on by management to discipline the employee being interviewed."
