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 1.5 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
