What Tony Clement Won't Tell You: C-4 Will Give the Government The Sole Power to Determine What is an Essential Service

Binding arbitration, will only be available for bargaining units in which 80 % or more of their membership have been designated as an essential service.

Wonder how the government's omnibus budget Bill C-4 will really affect federal employees?
After a careful review of Bill C-4, the omnibus Budget Implementation Bill, the Association of Justice Counsel (AJC) discovered many surprises that jump off the page.

Today, the AJC publishes another 'vignette' capturing some of those surprises we found (or, if you will, traps set up by the Harper Government to weaken federal workers and gut public sector unions).

C-4  Will Give the Government The Sole Power to Determine What is an Essential Service

If Bill C-4 receives royal assent, binding arbitration, will only be available for bargaining units in which 80 % or more of their membership have been designated as an essential service.
Unions and their members will have therefore lost their right to self-determination with respect to their preferred bargaining options, i.e. arbitration or conciliation-strike.

If you're an AJC member who opposes these attacks on democratic rights contained in Bill C-4, please forward this letter to your local MP and please cc: admin@ajc-ajj.com

And if you're a concerned Canadian who believes in protecting your rights (once they are done with the employees of the public sector, you, as a private sector employee, will be the next target), you can also forward this letter to your local MP.
