Description of last year's 2011 edition:

The completely updated and expanded Ontario Labour Relations Act: Quick Reference, 2011 Edition walks you through the Ontario Labour Relations Act, by defining the respective roles and duties of the workplace parties; describing the steps involved in the certification of a union; unfair labour practices; collective bargaining procedures; first agreement arbitration; sales of businesses; and how disputes under the agreement are to be resolved.

The 2011 edition contains the full text of the Act for your convenience, as well as Regulations and a helpful index to the full contents of the guide.

New in the 2011 edition:
  • Clarification of the law related to bad faith bargaining in the context of a strike, when an employer holds to a bargaining position that would not be normal for an employer to maintain
  • Clarification of the limited availability of injunctive relief to a struck employer in the context of picketing activity that is directed at a third party, such as a customer or supplier of the employer
  • A review of 7-figure damages awarded against a union in a Quebec case that could be a signal of future developments in Ontario, although there are significant differences in the law and it remains doubtful that such damages awards could be achieved in Ontario
  • Developments in respect of a union's duty of fair representation, especially where there are conflicting positions between union executive members on the one hand and rank and file members on the other hand
  • Clarification that the onus of proof in a duty of fair representation case lies with the complaining member, not the respondent union
  • Reinforcement of the principle that a union's successor rights exist to preserve rights, not to expand them
  • Full revision and update of construction labour section.
The legislation cited in this edition is current to Ontario Gazette Vol. 143:44 (October 30, 2010).
