Saskatchewan's Minister of Labour has revealed proposed changes to provincial labour laws.
Don Morgan made the announcement at a North Saskatoon Business Association Luncheon Friday.
Changes include requesting audited financial statements from unions for more transparency on how dues are spent.
Morgan said the province is also looking at making changes to the way unions fine members who cross picket lines.
"Unions should certainly have the right to discipline their members," said Morgan. "The issue is whether it should come off their paycheck by way of direct debit."
Larry Hubich, president of Saskatchewan's Labour Federation, said the way the province chose to announce the proposed changes shows the consultation process isn't being honoured.
Hubich said he's upset the changes were released at the Business Association first.
The new labour legislation still has to be passed the by the provincial government. It is expected to be finalized by the end of this year's session in early December.
