Bill 80 is a proposed bill now before the Saskatchewan Legislature that would gut the right to collective bargaining for construction workers in that province. The governing 'Saskatchewan Party' (read Conservatives in drag ) have introduced legislation that would basically allow employers to chose which union would represent "their" workers. Tomorrow there will be a rally at the Regina legislative building to oppose this attack on Saskatchewan construction workers. Here's the story from the CEP Union Blog.
