6.3 Affirming the right to collective bargaining

On Tuesday, November 29th, 2011 in Vision Green

The Green Party of Canada affirms the ruling of the Supreme Court of Canada in the B.C. hospitals case. In June 2007, the Supreme Court Justices ruled that the right to collective bargaining is a basic Charter right. As such, employers, whether private or public, are obligated to deal with their employees as a collective when seeking to make amendments to wages and working conditions. The Court made it clear that employers may not make such changes unilaterally wherever the employees have chosen union representation.

Green Party MPs will:

  • Actively promote and encourage collective bargaining as a human right and a Charter right.
