Lynne Fernandez It's becoming difficult to keep up with the alarming developments unfolding in the U.S. But one in particular should be of great concern to Canadian workers. According to the Economic Policy Institute, the recent Supreme Court decision "bars unions from requiring workers who benefit from union representation to pay their fair share of that representation." This decision will wipe millions of dollars from public sector unions' balance sheets, adding to the long list of growing challenges unions are facing in the U.S. The reasoning behind this decision is often referred to as the "right to work" (RTW) -- referring to the odd idea that being required to pay union fees somehow prevents you from working. At issue really is whether some workers, who don't want to pay fees to the unions that represent them, have the right to free ride on those workers who willingly pay. Right to work is not new to the U.S, although for decades it was contained mostly within the boundaries of a limited number of ...

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland misses the point about American power 19.6.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
World Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland was recognized last week as Diplomat of the Year by the American establishment magazine Foreign Policy. In her Washington, D.C. speech Freeland referred to the U.S. as the leader of the free world and concluded her remarks suggesting that Canada and "our friends in the world democracies" were "shoulder to shoulder" and were "strongest with America in our ranks and, indeed, in the lead." Freeland was content to invoke the "rules-based" international order established after the Second World War as the standard for conduct of international relations. The reality she left unstated is that over the past seven decades the dominant feature of world politics has been the exercise of American hegemonic power. U.S. military power has underscored postwar politics, beginning with the period when the U.S. was sole possessor of nuclear weapons.
