Conservative senator's amendment guts union disclosure bill

In a nail-biter vote in the Senate Wednesday, an amendment by Conservative Senator Hugh Segal was passed that changes a bill that would force unions to publicly disclose salaries and spending.

The proposed legislation known as Bill C-377, and originally introduced by Conservative MP Russ Hiebert as a private member's bill in the House of Commons, now must be sent back to the House because of the amendment passed by the Senate.

Since the House has risen for the summer, the bill won't surface again until at least the fall, or perhaps even later if the House prorogues.

Hiebert's private member's bill, which was fast-tracked through the House of Commons, contained sweeping requirements for information unions would have to publicly disclose.

1. That's bad news for people

when it comes to the bargaining table, comes down to transparency, but I don't like it.
