On Tuesday Bill C-58 anti-scab legislation restricting the use of replacement workers during a strike or lockout passed second reading in the House of Commons, moving it one step closer to becoming law.

While this is certainly an important day for workers in across Canada, there is still work to be done. The IAM calls for all Members of Parliament to work together to strengthen the bill by addressing the exemptions and loopholes evident in the bill’s current form. We need to pass legislation and restore fairness and equity in the Collective Bargaining process for workers in federally-regulated industries without further delay.
