Government repeals anti-union legislation

On Wednesday, Parliament voted to adopt Bill C-4, a government bill that repeals the previous Conservative government’s controversial anti-union bills C-377 and C-525.

Earlier this year, Labour Minister MaryAnn Mihychuk made good on the Liberals’ election promise to repeal the bills.

“We are pleased that the government has done the right thing and overturned bills C-377 and C-525 and we are grateful to Minister Mihychuk for her leadership in repealing this legislation and restoring the balance in Canadian labour relations,” said CLC President Hassan Yussuff.
