Scientists push for 'scientific integrity' at bargaining table

I applaud the goals, but I suspect that this gov't will not be receptive. The question is whether the union will be able to stick to its guns.

The integrity policies will ensure science is done in the public interest; information and data is shared; scientists can collaborate, seek peer review and be protected from political meddling, “intimidation,” “coercion” or pressure to alter data.

The policy would lay out the expectations of scientists, managers, policy analysts, and communications or public affairs staff.
