In the News: Chris Gardner talk Secret Ballot with Radio NL

ICBA President Chris Gardner was a guest on The Jim Harrison Show on Radio NL in Kamloops Wednesday, and Chris made the case on why John Horgan’s plan to scrap the secret ballot in union votes is such a bad idea.

It’s just common sense: taking away someone’s secret ballot takes away an individual’s fundamental democratic right. It opens the process of joining a union, changing unions, or leaving a union, to intense pressure and intimidation from all sides. Let the people vote – and let them cast their ballot in secret.

The ONLY reason a union would want to have a show of hands ballot is to keep track of who voted for what, and punish or reward them later. Is this what unionized workers want?
