What is Bill C-377 and why it matters to NBU members

Bill C-377 is a private member's bill introduced by British Columbia MP Russ Hiebert.

It aims to amend the Income Tax Act to require unions and employee organizations to give the Canada Revenue Agency details of all transactions over $5,000, along with the salaries and benefits of union officials over $100,000 and a detailed breakdown of spending on political and lobbying activities. It would all be publicly posted on the revenue agency’s website.

The NBU views Bill C-377 as nothing more than a thinly-disguised anti-union measure. It's designed to upset the balance of power in collective bargaining relationships across the country.
