Resolution #71: Giving Back Control of Unions to Employees (Official French version)

Because we care so much about liberty, we favour the possibility for employees to form an employee association. Being represented by a union is very legitimate to the extent it's the result of a voluntary contractual relationship between employees.

Over the years, the individual right of employees to form an association has become a collective right that now restricts individual rights. The right not to associate is no longer recognized. In addition, unions have lost sight of their core mission which is to represent their members in the negotiation of the work conditions. Unionized employees have lost control of their unions and it's time to give it back to them.
