Private Member Bill C-525 - Card Check Federal Sector

Private Member Bill C-525 is now available. Jim Stanford has reviewed it and finds that it does more than eliminate card check in the federal sector. It also changes how votes would occur. Jim notes that cards representing 45% of a bargaining unit will be required to trigger a vote; union would have to win a majority of all members in the bargaining unit (not ballots cast);  and a decertification vote can be triggered by 45% signatures, the union must receive support from the majority of the bargaining unit.
