Labour war set to erupt in Ontario

Union leaders in Ontario are forecasting a labour war after the government introduced proposed changes to the province’s labour laws.

The Labour Relations Amendment Act, 2000 will require the posting of information packages outlining how to dissolve a union in unionized workplaces.

The legislation also changes the window for decertification of a union from 60 to 90 days and would require separate votes for ratification and strike action in first-contract situations.
