    Ontario’s apprentice ratio dispute continues to be split along union, non-union lines - Daily Commercial News
    Toronto and York District Labour Council president John Cartwright says there’s no hope of getting union support on reduced ratios.

    “In the carpenters union it’s five to one, it varies by trade,” he says. “First, it’s a safety issue and we’ve seen that in areas like out west and in the U.S. south, where they have loosened things up, there are more accidents. And you don’t want a sudden influx of apprentices into the trades if there are not enough jobs for them.”
