February 11, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 10:30 am

The Labour Relations Code sets out requirements for unionized companies.  However, the Code also sets out the rules that apply to non-union companies that Unions are seeking to certify.  There have been important changes to the Code that you will want to understand and prepare for.

This two-hour seminar will outline the recent significant changes to the Labour Relations Code that are important to both union and non-union companies, including:

  • Changes to employer free speech rights
  • Faster voting period
  • New raid period rules for construction companies
  • Easier first collective agreement arbitration access for unions
  • Section 54 adjustment planning changes
  • Extended freeze period after union certification
  • Increased fines
  • Filing requirements for collective agreements
  • Expedited arbitration changes
