PM Trudeau’s Mandate Letter to Minister of Labour Promises to Repeal Antiunion Law

Labour law history teaches us that partisan or ideologically driven laws that shift the balance of power too far in favour of employers or unions rarely survive the government that enacted them.  And so it comes as little surprise that the federal Liberals have announced their intention to repeal Bill C-377, an antiunion, ideologically driven labour law disguised as a tax law.

Bill C-377 would have required unions to regularly prepare and submit reams of documents accounting for how they spend their money and their time, information that would then be posted on a government website.  The objective was bury unions in red tape, arm employers with information about union’s finances, and provide an opportunity to anti-union advocacy organizations to scour the reports in search of any morsel of information that could be used to embarrass unions.
