Inact Anti‐Scab Legislation

    1. Petition by

      Rick Bursey

      Wabush, Canada

So that companies like OCI, Vale, Toromont Cat (Caterpillar) and others cannot use scab labour during negotiations to break the will of employees who are in a legal contract dispute with their employer. This only erodes the effectiveness of collective bargaining. Free and fair collective bargaining can not occur when employers and corporations are able to use scab labour to circumvent the collective bargaining process.

      We need to keep moving forward and not retreating to the dark ages. Unions are here because of how poorly companies treated their employees. The Sullivan Brothers management style is not needed in this province nor anywhere else.

      Everyone has to negotiate at some point or another for better benefits. Scabs make it harder for the workers to do this.
