Yesterday Local 113 took its fight for the right to strike to the Ontario Superior Court. Our legal team, led by Ian Fellows, presented our case to the court. The right to strike is historic and guaranteed by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This is the latest chapter in our ongoing campaign for the restoration of this basic human right. The Committee for Freedom of Association, a body of the International Labour Organization, has already twice ruled in favour of Local 113 finding the Province’s strike ban law is contrary to Canada’s international commitments. Those decisions were presented to his honour, Justice Chalmers who is the judge hearing our case. The hearing will continue today with arguments from the Province’s lawyers and reply by our legal team. It is expected that a written decision will be issued at a later date after the court has had time to review the legal arguments and over 10,000 pages of evidence presented in this case.
