Recently a Grain Ship was reported to the Local for having an unsafe gangway.
It was unsafe as it:
The following pictures show how unsafe it actually was:
- Landed on unstable platform
- No guardrail on portable stairs
This should have been a “refusal to work.”
Know your rights under the Canada Labour Code!!
- The right to know
- The right to participate
- The right to refuse unsafe work
