Cavalluzzo LLP is appalled by the Ford government’s decision to override fundamental constitutional, labour, and human rights of education workers represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE).

Bill 28, An Act to resolve labour disputes involving school board employees represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees, is not just an attack on the fundamental rights of the education workers who are directly targeted by the legislation, but also on our constitutional democracy and the rule of law. Bill 28 purports to shield the government and its unconstitutional legislation from judicial oversight, an overreach that undermines well-established constitutional doctrines of separation of powers and the rule of law. In short, Bill 28 purports to put the Ford government above the law.   

Our firm stands in solidarity with CUPE and education workers in the province in opposition to this draconian piece of legislation. We need to unite and collectively speak out against Bill 28, including the Ford government’s (mis)use of the notwithstanding clause. The values underpinning a free and democratic society are at stake.
