Mar 31, 2014 •

Collective bargaining is a democratic right in Canada, affirmed by the Supreme Court. But government amendments to labour laws threaten to set back labour rights by 30 years.

Standing Together For Sick Leave - Standing Together For Public Services

Work on the occupational group structure review has been at a standstill for over 18 months. There have been changes in personnel at Treasury Board responsible for the occupational group review. It also appears that there was a lack of long-term commitment of resources, given the government’s focus on deficit reduction and job cuts.
