Unions oppose new transparency laws, but Canadians aren’t on their side

The battle for union transparency continues as those who oppose Bill C-525 (Employee’s Voting Rights Act) and Bill C-377 (Union Public Disclosure) have shown they’ll fight to stop these bills by any means possible.

    This is a good bill from the senate, and their report on countering terrorism was also good.

    Maybe it’s time to say something good about the senate, and not let the MSM pickle our brains with trivial issues like Duffy’s expense account.

    I expect it is union “leaders” who oppose the bill – they do not want anyone to see how much they, including the membership whose mandatory “dues” pay most, if not all the “leaders” income.

      Rest assured it is exactly the union “leaders” as opposed to the majority of union membership and for the reasons you state.

    • Clausewitz

      Many of my fellow teachers in the OSSTF long for this transparency Law. I’m tired of being lied to by our union exec’s and the constant misappropriation of our dues for one sided political gain.

    The union ‘fatcats’ are spending the member’s money to oppose a bill that would benefit the members.

    Yet, most will still vote for those ‘fatcats’.

    1. Kill the Rand.
    2. Require unions to reorganize themselves as businesses, subject to all the rules required of normal personal services companies.
    3. No credits for contributions to political parties.
