SUBMISSION: BC LABOUR RELATIONS CODE REVIEW

JOINT BUSINESS COMMUNITY SUBMISSION TO THE MINISTER OF LABOUR IN RESPONSE TO: LABOUR RELATIONS CODE REVIEW COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AMENDMENTS TO THE LABOUR RELATIONS CODE

On October 25, 2018, the Minister of Labour released the Report on Recommendations for Amendments to the Labour Relations Code by the panel of special advisors. At the same time, the Ministry invited public feedback on the Panel’s recommendations. It was also announced that “additional consultations with key stakeholders” would be undertaken as government prepared amendments to the Code to be brought forward in the spring of 2019.

The following is CME’s and other BC business associations joint feedback on the Report. We also address the suggestion of “additional consultation with key stakeholders,” which may undermine the legitimacy and acceptability of the process to date.
