Majority of Canadians support bill to force unions to disclose spending and salaries: poll

Many legal experts hate it, pro-labour groups lambast it and the Senate changed its own rules to pass it, but Canadians overwhelmingly support a new union transparency bill, according to a new poll.

    Not the least bit surprised just as I wager that an honest poll would indicate that the majority of Canadians are opposed to Muslim immigrants and to the ridiculous number of immigrants being accepted. I also wager that a poll would indicate that the majority of Canadians disagree with the selection of immigrants along with not supporting family reunification beyond one spouse and dependent children. Of course this is why such polls are not conducted.

    Probably a majority of union members do, too.

      I can’t wait to see where my dues are wasted

        I have no problem with my union advocating on my behalf by running ads on the radio or on sports broadcasts in the lead up to contract negotiations.
        But, when they cross into political advocacy or environmental advocacy that is contrary to my personal beliefs then I do get upset.
        The irony of the political stance of most unions is that my union, of which I was not a member of at that time, only struck once and it was during negotiations with an NDP goverment, not a Conservative one.

      This one favours the Bill. I’m tired of all the Bullshit in the OSSTF.

    Sid Ryan must be so pissed right now. I mean really pissed, as in drunk as a skunk. His gig is so over now. Alcoholism will be all that he will have left.

  • If union leaders and legal “experts” hate it, it must be a good bill.

    How do these people (morally, legally, what have you) justify taking money from workers and funneling it into political causes?

    • ntt1

      because they are socialist/marxists and they feel it is their job to direct other peoples money to their chosen investments because they do it for the workers own good,they feel workers aren’t sufficiently pure in their thinking ,to make correct decisions so the cadres of leaders do it for them
