It’s unclear if Ontario Tories are done with union-busting or merely assuming a more moderate pose to win a byelection in blue-collar Niagara Falls. What’s certain is that there has been sharp debate within the party over a proposed policy that would lower wages by stripping organized labour of money and members.
Some Ontario Progressive Conservatives, quite rightly, doubt the wisdom of Tory Leader Tim Hudak’s interest in passing so-called “right-to-work” legislation common in the United States. This glimmer of sound judgment should be welcomed by anyone concerned with fairness for Ontario’s working people.
