Don’t worry. Neither the union nor the Liberals will be charged now or in the future. That would only happen if a Conservative was involved in any way.
But, here’s what I didn’t know until yesterday. The minister in charge of the labour file who would “return the favour” by repealing key pieces of legislation passed by the last Parliament, doesn’t have a clue what she’s talking about.
The legislation MaryAnn Mihychuk tabled this week seeking to repeal Bill C-525, takes away something that gave workers in federally regulated industries the right to a secret ballot when seeking to join, start or leave a union.
Are you surprised that we don’t already have this? Do we vote on anything else without a secret ballot? We haven't run an election without a secret ballot since the 1870s.
I asked her if she’d give up the secret ballot for her next election. She avoided answering my question and misrepresented what Bill C-525 was about.
Maybe she doesn’t know? She wouldn’t have to read far into the bill to find out since it’s in the summary. So I pushed her again and she proved she didn't have a clue.
Union bosses don't like secret ballots because it stops them from being able to intimidate people. Intimidation by organizers has been documented and I've spoken to past organizers who are still afraid to go on the record for fear of what will happen to them.
When workers are given a secret ballot so neither the union nor the company is able to threaten or intimidate them, they’re more likely to choose NOT to join a union.
The only way the playing field is unfair is if it’s easier for workers to be intimidated, which is why union bosses want the bill repealed and Liberals are doing it to repay the guys that spent millions helping them get elected.
The Liberals need to answer why they won’t allow people to vote in private.
This is not about being fair or levelling the playing field for workers. This is about using 19th century voting practices to reward and enrich the union bosses that helped them get elected and it’s corrupt.
Despite his shiny new face, Justin Trudeau's Liberals are the same old party they’ve always been.
