Last Wednesday — at the same time Toronto council shamelessly opted out of opening up tendering of construction projects to all union and non-union contractors — politicians in the city of Hamilton decided the opposite. 

Brian Dijkema, Cardus' Work and Economics Program Director, says opening up tendering would mean cost savings of anywhere from $55 million to $197 million a year on average for Toronto taxpayers.
