Secondary picketing at private residences OK

Alberta court refuses to ban secondary picketing, but places restrictions on what picketers can do in long-simmering dispute with Telus

What happens when picketers show up at a private residence of a manager or a worker who has crossed the picket line?

In 2002 the Supreme Court of Canada had a chance to implement an outright ban on picketing at private residences in a case involving Pepsi workers in Saskatchewan — but it didn’t.

Now, in a case involving Telus workers, an Alberta court has ruled that striking union workers have the right to picket at private residences — including those of managers and union members who continue to work through the labour dispute — though it did slap some restrictions on what picketers can and can’t do.
