MPs vote to repeal anti-worker legislation
The House of Commons has voted to pass Bill C-4, which will repeal two laws passed by the previous Conservative government. Members of Parliament voted 204 to 79 in favour.
This Bill C-4 will remove the roadblocks to unionization contained in the former Bill C-525 and the excessive reporting requirements designed only for unions in the former Bill C-377. Before the bill was introduced, the Liberal government announced late last year that it was waiving the reporting requirements for 2016.
The bill will now be referred to the Senate. Before it can become law, the Senate will debate the bill, refer it to a committee for review, debate the committee report and any proposed amendments and then have a final vote.
