Unions win another battle in Temporary Foreign Worker fight

Trades unions say they have won another court battle in their efforts to get documents from HD Mining in the Temporary Foreign Worker Controversy.
 
Union lawyer Charles Gordon says a judge has told Human Resources Minister Diane Finley she has the power to compel HD Mining to release the documents.

“So the documents that we are talking about are resumes that are held by HD Mining that purport to show that no qualified Canadians applied for the job and if the adverse inference is drawn it would mean that the court would presume the documents show the opposite that there were qualified Canadians.”

Gordon says the “adverse inference’ would come into play if the Minister doesn’t take action to get the documents by Monday.

He says its ridiculous the unions had to go to court to get a judge to confirm the Minister has the power to do her job.
