VIDEO: CFIB board chair Catherine Swift on "The Big Lie: how unions have undermined public services" at IOSC8

Canadian Federation of Independent Business board chair Catherine Swift was the keynote speaker at the Eighth International Open Shop Conference in Maui, Hawaii, with a speech entitled "The Big Lie: how unions have undermined public services," on Feb. 13.

Swift also spoke to the Journal of Commerce, and explained where she saw disparities between the funding, benefits and pensions in the private sector vs. the public sector, as well as her contention that unions must be more transparent in their financial dealings.

Swift also identified Ontario and Quebec as “hot spots” for union activity, and offered what she saw as solutions for the current situation.

She also compared and contrasted the position of unions in the United States and Canada.
