Alberta Government Passes Bill 45

 

Gil McGowan @gilmcgowan

Thanks @albertandp @abliberal and @teamwildrose for fighting Bill 45. We lost the battle, but workers will remember who stood with them.

9:46 PM – 4 Dec 2013

Expected to pass third reading on Thursday evening, Bills 45 and 46 would strip the Alberta Union of Public Employees (AUPE) the right to binding arbitration (strikes were made illegal in the late ’70s).

The bills also bar unions, their leaders, third parties — and, it is feared, ordinary Albertans — from counselling any kind of strike under threat of fines ranging from $500 to $1-million per day.
