Submission to Saskatchewan’s labour “consultation”
At the beginning of May the Saskatchewan Party launched a review of the province's labour legislation. They released a consultation paper that includes a proposal to lengthen the work week and undermine public holidays. The planned overhaul of the province's labour regulations would also undercut unions' ability to engage politically and burden labour organizations with red tape. It may also make it possible for employers to apply to the Labour Relations Board (LRB) to de-certify a union and allow members to opt out of paying union dues.
This report is the official submission from CEP to the Saskatchewan Government.
