Labour board amendments to speed up decisions

  • Print

Changes to the province’s Labour Relations Act would speed up labour board decisions, the province said today.

Labour and Immigration Minister Erna Braun introduced amendments that would require the board to set out a time frame for decisions following the end of a complaint hearing and hearings on applications for certification or decertification of a union as the bargaining agent for a group of employees. It would also require the board to review any regulations it has made under the act at least once every six years.

The Manitoba Labour Board adjudicates a number of matters including complaints of unfair labour practices, applications for certification and decertification of unions, determination of successor rights, settlements of collective agreements and decisions regarding ratification votes.

The proposed legislation is supported by the Manitoba Labour Management Review Committee, which includes representatives of labour and employers.
