Statements in the House

Labour Relations February 24th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, I am following very closely the situation at Ogilvie Mills Limited and the plight of its workers. I do hope that these workers will reach an agreement with the employer.

As regards the use of scabs, my predecessor said in this House that the government was examining the issue. We are looking at the Canada Labour Code as a whole, to see how it could be improved, and that includes the issue of replacement workers. We are consulting with both corporate employers and workers' representatives to discuss the issue.

Consequently, the issue is currently being examined and we hope to come up with a satisfactory solution.

Program For Older Worker Adjustment February 24th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, I will of course seriously examine this question as I will deal with all matters of concern to the provinces. Quebec, like other provinces, I imagine, must be very concerned by this question of older workers. I can tell the members of this House that, yes, I will examine this question closely and I will get back to the House on this issue.

Program For Older Worker Adjustment February 24th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, I have not yet been made aware of this matter by my colleagues. I would ask to take this question under consideration, if I may.

Railways February 22nd, 1995

Mr. Speaker, we will give specific answers to specific questions, and it is definitely premature to consider back to work legislation at this time.

Railways February 22nd, 1995

Mr. Speaker, concerning the problems at CN, CP and VIA, the conciliator's report was sent to the parties this morning. We earnestly hope they will sit down and discuss their differences. We truly hope that the parties themselves will find a solution. After all, they know the industry.

As for the issue of replacement workers, we are looking into the situation and will report as soon as possible.
