In the middle of the greatest health crisis of our time, unions are using card check to further their own cause. And putting skilled trades workers’ health at risk in the process.
Right now every second is make or break for skilled trades workers.
Hundreds of thousands of folks will lose their jobs. Thousands of employers will never reopen their business. And work sites are managing worker health and safety more than ever. The COVID-19 crisis has created fear and chaos for skilled trades workers and their employers.
Unions are using this Ontario loophole to try to unionize employees during this pandemic – it’s disgraceful and unsafe during a lockdown.
Membership cards are being distributed and obtained against all physical distancing practices. News reports have shown union organizers distorting health and safety protections to workers.
Now is not the time to add to the chaos.
It’s time to give skilled trades workers stability.
It’s time to pause card check during this crisis.
