The following item comes from the Steelworkers strike support site Fair Deal Now. Yes, yes, yes, I know who is sponsoring the rally, but the thought is good anyways. So good in fact that the NDP in power has never introduced such legislation in any province. Any guesses why such bills are an useful thing when they cannot pass, like the present situation in Ontario.
Anti-Scab Rally at Queen’s Park – Oct 8th:
Support the Ontario NDP’s Anti-Scab Bill
Join workers from across the province. Come to Queen’s Park and let the McGuinty Liberals know that it’s time for balance and fairness in Ontario’s labour relations.

On Thursday October 8, Peter Kormos’ anti-scab bill (Bill 86, Labour Relations Amendment Act) will be voted on at Second Reading in the legislature. A rally in support of the bill is being organized for noon at Queen’s Park.

Striking workers will be arriving by bus from Sudbury, Fort Erie and other locations around the province in support of the need for anti-scab laws in Ontario.

Folks will then go into the galleries for the vote – which will likely take place around 3:00 or 4:00 pm. Please help make this day a success by attending the rally and/or vote and by distributing this poster widely among your contacts.
