Yesterday, the Conservatives changed the legislative calendar to get a speedy adoption of Bill C-525. This Wednesday, their will be an hour of debate that could lead to another vote confirming the conservative economic strategy built on low-paid jobs.
Until now, Minister of Labour Kellie Leitch was silent and made a backbencher do the dirty work. There is still time to hold her accountable and tell her to vote against this bill that guts democratic freedom in workplaces across Canada.
After Bill C-377 and the program of temporary migrant workers, another anti-worker bill was presented by a Conservative MP. Blaine Calkins introduced Bill C-525 which is designed to restrict the ability of workers to organize. In committee we were able to adopt a series of amendments which subtracts the most odious parts of the bill. But, the fact remains that this bill must be defeated.
Together let’s build a better Canada.
NDP MP for Rosemont - La Petite -Patrie
Official criticism of the work
PS. The best way to stop these attacks against workers is to change government... Donate $5 or more to help me and the NDP become the first progressive government in history in 2015.
