A report released this week in Switzerland by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) has taken aim at Canadian government trends to interfere with strike actions, and the plight of migrant workers.

The ITUC released its annual survey of trade union rights at the annual meeting of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and has reported on trade union  violations throughout the world.

The report was released on the same day that Canada was being spotlighted by the ILO on ‘freedom of association’ violations.

Unions at a special hearing provided a damning analysis of the Harper Government’s disregard for the freedom of association, despite Supreme Court rulings that make it a cornerstones of industrial relations in the country.
