Canada Labour Code Changes in Effect Sept.1, 2019- What do they mean for you?
Amendments to the Canada Labour Code Part III came into effect on Sunday, Sept.1, 2019. The IAMAW is an active stakeholder in the Labour Program’s consultation process having provided submissions stating our position on proposed changes.
A number of employers requested exemptions from certain provisions, which has left a lot of unanswered questions. It appears employers want to be able to choose which new provisions to follow and which to ignore. This is deeply concerning, and we await further information on this issue.
Menzies does not appear to be requesting any exemptions, and as of todays date has not indicated otherwise to your Union
