A private member’s bill has been introduced in the Ontario legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of replacement workers during work-stoppages.
The bill would reenact a ban on the use of replacement workers that was in place in Ontario from 1992 to 1995. It would prohibit using manager, newly hired employees or transferred employees to perform the work of bargaining unit employees that are on strike or locked out. A similar bill was defeated earlier this year.
