“It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.”
In the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench
THE MANITOBA FEDERATION OF LABOUR ET AL
– and –
THE GOVERNMENT OF MANITOBA
Manitoba’s public sector unions are challenging the government’s wage freeze legislation, known as “The Public Services Sustainability Act”.
The unions claim that the PSSA is an unconstitutional interference with their collective bargaining rights, protected by the Freedom of Association Guarantee set out in Section 2(d) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom.
Are they right? Well, that is what this 13 day trial is all about.
