OTTAWA —
Including striking workers in a proposed anti-scab bill was a “major component” of negotiations while hashing out a confidence-and-supply agreement with the Liberal government, according to the NDP.

The deal promises to introduce a new law by the end of next year that would ban the use of replacement workers — also known as “scabs” — if unionized workers in federally regulated sectors are locked out or on strike.

“It’s a huge winto implement restrictions wher,” said Matthew Green, the NDP’s deputy labour critic.

“The use of importing replacement workers … completely undermines the democratic principles of having unions and collective bargainingMask and physical distancing requirements.”
