Resolution #73: Union Transparency and Financial Disclosure (Official French version)

A CPQ government will protect the freedoms of unionized employees and their right of association by imposing the obligation of annual financial disclosure on Québec unions.

This measure of transparency and public accountability will also restore confidence in Québec union apparatus in favour of unionized Québec employees.

We will also demand that all union members or all people solicited to become union members have simple and anonymous access (i.e. Ministry of Labour's website) to the documents filed in connection with the application for certification by both the union and the employer, to the certification certificate and to the union's constitution and by-laws, as well as those of the union federation to which it's affiliated.

This will allow members and prospective members to know what their financial obligations are (or will be), what rules members are expected to follow and what the political and organizational goals of the union are.
