The evidence presented in this report runs counter to arguments that card-check and anti-scab legislation give excessive power to workers over employers.

The right to join a union and the right to strike are two foundational aspects of Canadian labour relations. Testimonials from workers in this report make clear that mandatory votes suppress workers’ freedom to join a union without coercion from anti-union employers.
