Bill C-4 Approaches Third Reading: Here is What Tony Clement Won't Tell You

Bill C-4 seeks to penalize bargaining agents

As the government's omnibus budget Bill C-4 approaches third reading, here is another vignette by the AJC capturing some of the surprises and traps we found.

C-4 Will Dump More Costs of Adjudication on Federal Employees

Bill C-4 seeks to penalize bargaining agents financially by having them assume 50% of the costs relating to the grievance adjudication process even in the most legitimate of cases that bargaining agents are successful in their claims of wrongful termination or collective agreement violations.

Currently, the Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB) has discretion on whether costs should be imposed.  We see no reason why the PSLRB's current discretion to impose costs as it considers appropriate should be eliminated.

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.
