Labour Relations Act about to Change

Ian Urquhart writes in the Toronto Star of the conflict that the province has placed itself into with the partial return of the simpler organizing of workplaces. Construction appears to be the only group to be permitted the return of the 55% rule for automatic certification of the workplace.

For those readers NOT familiar with Ontario union legislation here are a couple important laws and legal rulings that have greatly impacted unionized labour in Ontario.
  1. Legal ruling regarding the compulsory membership of the whole workplace [Ford in Windsor]
  2. The gaining, the loss, and the now partial return of the 55% automatic certification of a union as a result of legislation [and the flavour of the ruling party]
