Five construction workers and the provincial open shop association are taking Manitoba Hydro to court.

Five construction workers and the provincial open shop association are taking Manitoba Hydro to court.

A 34-page statement of claim was filed on June 27 in the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench.

The workers claim that Manitoba Hydro is forcing them to join a union as a prerequisite for being hired.

The claim was filed by Barry Millen, Terri Fordham, Rick Lesiuk, Floyd Stoneham, Michel Paul Pilotte and Merit Contractors Association of Manitoba.

Manitoba Hydro had previously decided that employees working on large-scale projects, such as the Bipole III transmission lines, must join a designated trade union.

Merit Contractors Association of Manitoba represents about 4,600 workers and more than 200 Manitoba companies. For more about this developing story, keep reading the Journal of Commerce.
