Rally for strong anti-scab legislation

On January 31st, CUPE is organizing a protest in front of the Parliament hill in Ottawa in support of a bill to limit the use of scabs.

A law banning the use of temporary replacement workers has existed in Quebec since 1978 and in British Columbia since 1993.

Unlike the laws of Quebec and British Columbia, companies under federal jurisdiction (e.g. airlines, communications, etc.) can use scabs! The same applies to our brothers and sisters in Ontario: the province gained anti-scab legislation in 1993, when the NDP was in government, but it was clawed back in 1996 when the Mike Harris Conservatives gutted the province’s Labour Relations Act.


Thanks to the support of our colleagues at Vidéotron, free transportation is being offered between Montreal and Ottawa on the day of this protest.
