Attacks against workers rights have been a current trend under the Conservative Government. After the sacking of employment insurance, the modifications to the temporary workers program, the restriction of the ability to organize and establish Trade Union, the Government attempted once again this week to limit the right to free collective bargaining. Labour Minister, Keillie Leitch, threatened Canadian Pacific Railway's workers with a back-to-work bill in order to stop the strike.
Conservatives' economic strategy based on low-paying jobs and putting workers at the mercy of employers must be stop. The NDP will always stand with the workers and the middle class to defend their rights and decent work conditions.
