historic decision for migrants workers

JUSTICIA:.: for Migrant Workers

Justicia for Migrant Workers (J4MW) echoes the sentiments shared by community and labour unions in celebrating the recent legal decision of Chief Justice Winkler in the case of Fraser, Liu, McGorman and Church versus the Attorney General of Ontario.

In this historic decision, Justice Winker upheld the right of agricultural workers at Rol Land mushroom farms in Kingsville, Ontario to be part of a labour union of their choice. The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) won a clear majority among workers to gain recognition as the bargaining agent on behalf of these workers. In granting this decision, the courts have provided a clear and definitive legal direction in favour of some of the most exploited and vulnerable workers in Canada.
