TORONTO (CP) — Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak said Wednesday he would stand by his plan to change Ontario’s labour laws to make union dues and membership optional, while the Liberals claimed many Tories oppose the idea.
Hudak no longer uses the words “right-to-work” to describe his plan, but said a Tory government would make labour laws more flexible to try to stem the flow of job losses, especially in the province’s once mighty manufacturing sector.
