A poll by Nanos Research of employed Canadians found that 8 out of 10 of those who do not belong to a union have no desire to join one. The Canadian LabourWatch Association commissioned the survey, titled “The State of Unions 2011.” Other findings include:

  • Eighty-three percent said Canadian law should require both public and private sector unions to be financially transparent with the public
  • Seventy-three percent were against union dues being used to pay for political attack ads
  • Only fifty-four percent of currently or formerly unionized respondents said they believed their union dues were well-spent
