Labour Relations Code

The Labour Relations Code governs all aspects of the process of union certification (or unionization) and collective bargaining between provincially-regulated employers, unions, and employees. This includes how to acquire collective bargaining rights, when collective bargaining starts, bargaining agent obligations, or different ways to resolve disputes that arise under the Code. The Code operates in conjunction with the Labour Relations Regulations and the Labour Relations Board Rules.
