Quebec law allows unions to use only cards to unionize employees without a secret ballot vote from all employees. Unions organize in secret. Sometimes they get signed cards for the smallest number of employees they can and they don’t tell other employees what is going on. The employees from whom the union drive was hidden are shocked to find out they are now unionized. Both Canada’s and Quebec’s Charters of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the right to associate with a union or not. Secret union drives on cards should be a Charter violation. A group of unionized Quebec workers from whom a union and the Quebec law hid from are challenging their forced association with the union that organized in secret.
Please give generously to these employees.
