On January 31st, CUPE is organizing a protest in front of the Parliament Hill in Ottawa in support of a bill to limit the use of scabs.

The use of scabs undermines workers’ rights to fair bargaining by removing our capacity to withdraw our labour and tips the scales unfairly in favour of employers.
CUPE members have felt the devastating impact of this unjust system on many occasions, including our members at the Port of Quebec, where workers have been locked out since September 2022.
On January 31st, federal government consultations to prohibit the use of scabs during lockouts and strikes will come to a close. This is a critical moment to make our voices heard that we need a strong anti-scab legislation to protect the rights of workers in Canada.
President, Air Canada Component of CUPE
