From NUPGE (linked from rabble's front page)
"The PSECA will effectively eliminate women's ability to pursue pay equity complaints by forcing them to file complaints as individuals. This bill will also impose a $50,000 fine on any union that encourages or assists members in filing a pay equity complaint, leaving women to fight the system unaided. Since no individual can afford to do so, this will clearly be a mockery of justice."
And the Harper government's Orwellian name for this bill is the "Public Sector Equitable Compensation Act".
It's f*cking incredible! They're going to impose heavy fines on unions that help their members seek justice. Radical? I think fascist would be more accurate!
IIRC, the Harper government is taking a page from former Australian Prime Minister John Howard's government who made it illegal for unions to advocate for occupational health and safety.
Hey Iggy! Dontchathink the Harpocons have failed their probation????
