Employers in British Columbia think it is a good start, labour says it’s a terrible one.

Recent changes to the province’s labour code, introduced by the newly elected Liberal government, indicate that B.C. could be headed for a period of labour unrest.

Unions already have their backs up over the changes to the labour code (see box on page 14, Bill 18) and indications are the government is prepared to do more of the same with an overhaul of employment standards likely coming in the fall.
