Webinar 2 examines the proposed changes to the Labour Relations Act.
A return to card-check certification, disclosure of employee lists to unions seeking to represent employees, broader-based bargaining units, first contract arbitration - these are a few of the many amendments being proposed to the Ontario Labour Relations Act, 1995. The implication is clear: the current balance in labour relations will tilt in favour of trade unions with facilitated organizing and certification, and larger bargaining units.
Our Ontario L&E team will review the LRA-specific parts of the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, 2017, and discuss the practical implications for Ontario employers.
