The Big Issues

What do you think?

Question
In order to assess impact on jobs and the economy, should the Government of Ontario conduct an economic impact analysis of any proposed changes to labour or employment legislation?
Question
Given the diversity of Ontario’s economy, should the Government work to avoid a one-size-fits all approach to labour legislation and, wherever possible, work with industry to develop sector specific standards and exemptions?
Question
If a group of employees wish to form a union, should a secret ballot vote be required?
Question
Given the variation in sectors’ abilities to foresee capacity requirements, should the Government avoid amending the Employment Standards Act to include a universal provision around employers’ scheduling obligations?

Ontario’s Labour and Employment Laws are Changing.
How Will it Impact Jobs and the Economy?

Ontario’s Ministry of Labour is currently undertaking a review of the Labour Relations Act and the Employment Standards Act through its Changing Workplaces Review (CWR). The CWR has been tasked with examining key workplace trends, including the increase in non-standard working relationships such as temporary jobs, involuntary part-time work, and self-employment.

The Special Advisors that oversee the Review have released their Interim Report and it contains a number of policy options that could negatively impact workers’ rights and the ability of employers to create jobs and grow the economy. This includes policies that would restrict the flexibility of part-time and contract employees, one-size-fits-all changes to scheduling provisions, bringing about less transparency to the union certification process, and “paperwork provisions” that will add new layers of red tape.


We need you to get involved. Keep Ontario Working and ensure that government is improving legislation to support workers’ rights, create jobs and grow the economy.
