An Act to Eliminate Union Placement and Improve the Operation of the Construction Industry  (Bill 33, December 2011)

This Act introduced undemocratic and anti-union provisions such as abolishing union hiring halls, eliminating the long-standing practice of majority rule for ratification of collective agreements, and increasing state-interference in the affairs of trade unions.

Submitted by the Quebec Federation of Labour - Construction Unions.

The ILO Committee on Freedom of Association found the legislation violates the ILO's fundamental principles of freedom of association.
