During last fall's campaign, Wall sent a message on Twitter stating that the government would not consider allowing people to opt out of paying union dues.
The issue surfaced Thursday in the legislature as the Opposition NDP debated the Saskatchewan Party government about its plans to overhaul provincial labour laws.
Wall says he's not contradicting his earlier statement, but argues that the issue the public will be consulted on during the overhaul is whether certain groups, such as teens, should be exempted from paying dues.
Terry Parker, with the Saskatchewan Provincial Building and Construction Trades Council, says Wall's suggestion caught him off guard.
Park says there’s no logical argument for exempting teens. (CJME)
