In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Legal and Constitutional Affairs - December 10, 2014

Conservative MP Blaine Calkins discusses his bill (C-525) that would require a majority secret ballot vote for the certification or decertification of bargaining units for federally- regulated public service unions. The secret ballot vote would replace the card check system. The bill was originally introduced in the House of Commons in 2013 and was reinstated at the start of this parliamentary session.
The following witnesses offer their perspectives on the proposed legislation: John P. Farrell (executive director of Federally Regulated Employers - Transportation and Communications (FETCO)); Anthony Dale (legal counsel for Unifor); Dan Adamus (president of the Canada board of the Air Line Pilots Association); Paul Moist (national president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees); Brendan Kooy (regional director for Eastern Ontario for the Christian Labour Association of Canada); and Elizabeth MacPherson (chair of the Canada Industrial Relations Board).
