Free collective bargaining is necessary to protect workers rights. Impediments to fair negotiations, such as scab labour or barriers to arbitration, must be removed.
- Anti-scab legislation that bans the hiring of replacement workers during a strike or lockout, and prevents anyone inside or outside of the bargaining unit from fulfilling bargaining unit duties until the work stoppage has concluded.
- Restore previous first collective agreement arbitration provisions introduced under Bill 102 to:
- impose a time limit for conciliation
- allow either party to request arbitration after one year
- remove the requirement that one or both parties must be determined to be bargaining in bad faith before moving to first contract arbitration.
