Anti-scab legislation now!
Unifor is calling on all elected officials at the provincial, territorial and federal level to enact anti-scab legislation, in accordance with a set of basic principles based, in part, in existing legislation in Quebec, BC, and international jurisdictions.
- Prohibit employers from using replacement workers for the duration of any legal strike or lockout
- Include significant financial penalties for employers who defy the legislation
- Allow limited use of temporary workers, only to undertake essential maintenance work to protect the integrity and safety of the workplace
