OTTAWA, Jan. 28, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Canada's Building Trades Unions are very pleased with the introduction of repeal legislation for Bill C-377 and Bill C-525. Canada's Building Trade Unions are pleased this is one of the first pieces of Government legislation introduced in the 42nd Parliament.
These two Bills upset the balance in labour relations and the repeal is the right thing to do for middle class Canadians.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and ESDC Minister MaryAnn Mihychuck understood C-377 was punitive legislation which was ideologically driven and not good public policy.
The announcement today means CBTU can continue to represent the interests of skilled trades workers across Canada and help grow Canada's economy.
Canada's Building Trades Unions is an alliance of 14 building and construction unions that represent a membership of more than 500,000 skilled tradespeople across Canada.
