What is this engagement about?
A panel of special advisors recently completed its review of British Columbia’s Labour Relations Code, after considering input from consultations in spring 2018.
The full report with 29 recommendations is available and the public is now invited to review and submit feedback on the report, by email until November 30, 2018.
The panel’s review focused on ensuring B.C.’s unionized workplaces are supported by fair laws for workers and businesses that are consistent with the labour rights and protections enjoyed by other Canadians.
The ‘Recommendations for Amendments to the Labour Relations Code’ report makes recommendations, covering a wide range of topics such as union certification processes, dispute resolution, successorship, unfair labour practices, and arbitration procedures.
The Labour Relations Code establishes the relationships between labour and management – how workers join unions, how employers and unions interact, and how collective bargaining disputes are resolved. The last full review of the Code took place in 1992.
If you would like to submit your written comments on the report, please respond by email to LRCReview@gov.bc.ca by November 30, 2018 at 4p.m.
How can my contribution make a difference?
You will be contributing feedback on the recommendations and will help determine the final decisions that are made as government looks to update the Labour Relations Code.
Your input will be considered, alongside further targeted consultations with key stakeholder groups, to inform government’s decisions on the report’s recommendations and subsequent amendments to the Code.
