Discussing Bill C-257

Newfoundland Labrador and New Brunswick

As one of the 150 union activists under the coalition of the CLC, I had the opportunity to meet and or discuss Bill C-257 Replacement Workers legislation with many MPs during the final lobbying efforts to get this bill passed.

While it is unfortunate that the bill was lost, the Liberal MPs (Scott Sims – Gander, Todd Russell – Labrador and Andy Scott – Fredericton) in our Region fully supported the bill. I also had the opportunity to meet with MP Shawn Murphy (PEI) who also supported the bill.
