CFLR hosts book launch for "Constitutional Labour Rights in Canada"

The Canadian Foundation for Labour Rights (CFLR) recently launched Constitutional Labour Rights in Canada: Farm Workers and the Fraser Case, a new book on labour rights in Canada. The book is a collection of 11 essays related to the Supreme Court of Canada April 2011 decision in Ontario (Attorney General v Fraser), which dealt with the scope of constitutional protection of collective bargaining.

"This book makes the connection between labour rights and human rights. It brings together the perspectives of a group of prominent individuals who share the view that labour rights and independent unions are essential for democratic and just societies.” - CFLR Board member, James Clancy

Contributors to the book include trade unionists, union-side lawyers, and labour law academics. Find out more here.
