Resolution number:

  1. The freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are internationally recognized as fundamental principles and rights in the workplace;
  2. Some jurisdictions in Canada effectively prevent workers from unionizing or collectively bargaining based on their immigration status or sector of employment;
Therefore be it resolved: 

that the CCR advocate that all workers, regardless of sector of employment or immigration status in Canada, have the right to unionize and to bargain collectively.
