Reverting to the Open Shop model

DOWNLOAD THE PRESENTATION. This was a presentation to the Economic Club of Canada in Ottawa and paves a path to re-creating the Open Shop in Canada

Merit Canada is the national voice of eight provincial open shop construction associations.

“The term, “open shop,” simply describes a workplace where membership or non­-membership in a union is not a condition of employment.” This means getting trying to eliminate unions, nothing less.

Thought on Labour

“Can anything be imagined more abhorrent to every sentiment of generosity and justice, than the law which arms the rich with the legal right to fix, by assize, the wages of the poor? If this is not slavery, we have forgotten its definition. Strike the right of associating for the sale of labor from the privileges of a freeman, and you may as well bind him to a master, or ascribe him to the soil.” ― William Cullen Bryant
