Canadian GVP Dave Ritchie Speaks Out About Bill C-525

FIGHT_OF_OUR_LIVES_LOGO

“Every day Canadian workers are being bullied, harassed, intimidated and even fired on the job by their employers for trying to exercise their democratic right to organize.

Unfortunately, this bill was clearly written by union-busting employers. We are very concerned about the potential impact of Bill C-525, which will profoundly change the certification and de-certification process in federal labour relations. This bill has not come through any of the long-standing bi-partite consultative processes that have normally been used to develop fair and reasonable changes to labour legislation in the federal jurisdiction.

The growing levels of inequality and unfairness in Canada are closely related to the erosion of union coverage in Canadian jurisdiction.  If we are to become a fairer and more equal society, with a growing economy, unions need to be strengthened, not weakened.”dave
