Quote:
Ontario would see at least a 9% increase in manufacturing if the province followed the path of competing jurisdictions and implemented right-to-work legislation, a new Fraser Institute report concludes.

"Michigan and Indiana recently adopted worker choice laws and Ohio will likely follow," report co-author Jason Clemens said. "This puts increased pressure on Ontario's ability to compete especially in manufacturing."

The Implications of U.S. Worker Choice Laws for British Columbia and Ontario -- to be released Tuesday -- says the experience south of the border suggests Ontario could see an annual increase in economic output of $11.8 billion and receive a boost of almost 57,000 jobs if it followed suit.

Canadian workers can be required to join a union and pay full dues as a condition of employment.

In the United States, no one can be forced to join a union, but some states have implemented worker choice or right-to-work laws which allow employees to opt out of paying union dues.

The report's authors argue that given the option, workers are less likely to choose unions and that results in a lower rate of unionization and higher economic and employment growth.

In Ontario, the Progressive Conservatives have proposed in a discussion paper that no provincial legislation, regulation or collective agreement should require a worker to become a member of a union or pay union dues as a condition of employment.

Didn't take long!

Quote:
The Ontario Liberal government is ruling out the kind of right-to-work laws advocated in a new report by the Fraser Institute, Labour Minister Yasir Naqvi says.

Measures such as allowing workers to opt out of paying union dues, as is done in some U.S. states, is not the ticket to better jobs, Naqvi said Tuesday.


Quote:
"These policies are wrong for Ontario's economy," said Naqvi.

The minister said research by other think-tanks conclude that such legislation leads to an annual $1,500 pay cut for unionized and non-unionized workers.

"Clearly, something we don't want to aspire towards," Naqvi said.

Problem is as usual Wynngnut is putting her party before Ontarians. She needs the union vote which is why she caved to the teachers.
