VRCA needs member feedback to help it prepare a response to proposed changes to B.C.’s Labour Relations Code.

On Oct. 25, the provincial government posted the report from a panel of special advisors tasked with reviewing the Labour Relations Code. The full report contains 29 recommendations covering a wide range of topics such as union certification processes, dispute resolution, successorship, unfair labour practices, and arbitration procedures.

According to the government’s engagement website, 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 public is invited to review and submit feedback on the report until Nov. 30.

VRCA is planning to comment on behalf of its members. To help us prepare for a board discussion on Nov. 20, VRCA will need to receive member feedback by Nov. 9.

If you would like to submit your written comments to the VRCA for inclusion in its response, please email [email protected] no later than 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9.
