Daycare workers can unionize

There was recently a great decision issued in the Quebec courts about workers and their rights.

It is yet another tremendous victory for Canadian workers asserting that their Constitutional rights have been violated by an action of the government. This time, the actions of the 'right-wing' government of Quebec's Jean Charest, who brought in a law that said at-home day-care workers in Quebec were prohibited from unionizing.

Charest's law has been struck down. (Are you paying attention Saskatchewan?)

The Quebec Superior Court has ruled the legislation violates the Charter Rights of Quebec workers.

See this article in the Montreal Gazette....
