Buzz on Back-To-Work Laws

This opinion piece is written by Buzz Hargrove, Director of the Canadian Auto Workers.  His beef is with the quick and non-contested nature of the back-to-work legislation rushed through the legislature ending the TTC strike.  Pay attention to his arguments in the piece: what are they?  Some readers are likely to point out that Buzz recently angered the labour movement by agreeing to a “no strike” pledge in a “neutrality agreement” with Magna.  How does Buzz explain the difference between this sort of agreement between a union and an employer and back-to-work legislation ending a public sector strike?
