moved for leave to introduce Bill C-472, An Act to amend the Canada Labour Code.
Mr. Speaker, as I promised on May 1, I am introducing this afternoon a bill to prohibit employers under the Canada Labour Code from hiring replacement workers to perform the duties of employees who are on strike or locked out.
The bill also provides for a fine not exceeding $1,000 for each day or portion of day of continuing offence.
I hope that this bill will be subject to a majority vote by the members of this House.
