Right To Work is Free Riding On Someone Else’s Tab

Some politicians are floating the idea of Right To Work (For Less) in Canada. This pernicious American idea says people do not have to pay Union dues but still get all the benefits of the Collective Agreement and representation by and at the expense of the Union. In the States the Machinists call them ‘Free Riders’.

This is an attack on the Canadian system of Labour Relations going back to 1946 when Justice Rand ruled that workers in a Unionized shop had to pay their share of the cost of Collective Bargaining. For more info see this previous post:
