C-4: An Act to amend the Canada Labour Code, the Parliamentary Employment and Staff Relations Act, the Public Service Labour Relations Act and the Income Tax Act

Senate Amendment.




The Government of Canada believes that Bills C-377 and C-525 diminish and weaken Canada’s labour movement and are counter-productive to a positive working relationship between employees and employers. Given the essential role that unions play in protecting the rights of workers and helping the middle class grow and prosper, and the importance of restoring a fair and balanced approach to labour relations, the Government is proposing to repeal the provisions enacted by these two Bills. Repealing Bills C-377 and C-525 was identified as a priority in the mandate letters of the Honourable Patricia A. Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, and the Honourable Judy Foote, Minister of Public Services and Procurement.
