    Union wants manufacturer charged in death of 23-year-old worker - Canadian HR Reporter
    A Quebec union has called on the province's attorney general to lay criminal charges against a company for the death of a young worker in 2005.

    The Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec (FTQ) is pressing the government to take advantage of a law that has been on the books for the past three years that makes employers legally responsible for employee deaths.
