UPDATE Jan. 28, 2016: Today Justin Trudeau’s Liberals tabled legislation to repeal Harper's anti-union Bills C-377 and C-525. While the Conservative-majority senate has hinted it might block the repeal legislation, with no enforcement mechanism in place, these bills appear destined for the dustbin.

Another Labour Day is here and it is time to celebrate. But before you sit around the Labour Day tree with your (union) family and sing your favourite songs about worker solidarity, take a moment to refresh yourself on the battles Canadian unions have fought, are still fighting, and may continue to fight, depending of course on the result of the federal election on Oct 19.
