Unsafe Gangway Should have been a “Refusal to Work”


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:

  1. Landed on unstable platform
  2. 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
