CME Calls for Continued Fairness in BC Labour Code

Published by CME webmaster on March 20, 2018

RICHMOND, BC – “The long term stability and relative labour peace we have experienced in BC is testament to how fair and balanced the BC Labour Relations Code is,” said Andrew Wynn-Williams, Divisional Vice President, BC of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME). “Maintaining this fairness and balance must be a primary consideration of the Labour Relations Code Review Panel.” 

CME is one of thirteen organisations that forwarded a joint submission to the review panel yesterday. The submission asserts that current Labour Relations Code has been so successful because it is the result of uniquely consultative processes in 1992/93 further supported and enhanced in 2002.  

“We see that very few changes are needed to the Labour Relations Code and most of the provisions should be maintained,” said Wynn-Williams. “It is particularly important to retain the current approach to union certification by secret ballot vote.” 

“Workplaces and industries continue to evolve rapidly,” said the CME Divisional Vice President, “it is important that any changes to the Code ensure that opportunities for BC’s economy to attract investment, talent and jobs are not compromised in the process.”

The joint submission can be reviewed here.
