NEW AJC BLOG / Bill C-377: Conservatives ignore Parliamentary procedure to force vote and adoption of the controversial union financial disclosure

We invite you to read this blog from your AJC President, Len MacKay, on the adoption of Bill C-377 and what it will mean for the AJC and for your rights as a union member.

After a long and protracted debate, the controversial anti-union Bill C-377 was forced to a vote by Conservative Senators and subsequently adopted on June 30th 2015.

In a gesture that provoked a lot of frustration and anger from many members of the Upper Chambers, Conservatives Senators overruled their own Speaker to force this vote. Despite being a private member's bill, where filibuster is allowed according to long-standing Senate rules, Conservative senators ignored this rule and imposed a vote on C-377.

We invite you to read this blog from your AJC President, Len MacKay, on the adoption of Bill C-377 and what it will mean for the AJC and for your rights as a union member.
