Rights of Ontario farm workers abandoned by Supreme Court

Decision by Supreme Court denies Ontario farm workers right to effective collective bargaining

OTTAWA – April 29, 2011 – The Supreme Court of Canada has sided with the Ontario government to deny Ontario farm workers the same rights to join unions to bargain collectively as other workers in Ontario. The decision by the highest court in the land is the latest chapter in a decades-long battle to provide statutory labour rights protection and collective bargaining for Ontario’s 80,000 domestic and migrant agriculture workers.
