13 Dec DECEMBER 13 – WEBINAR – COLLECTIVE BARGAINING UPDATE: DS SECTOR BARGAINING

Wed, Dec 13, 2017 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST

2018 will be a busy year for employers in the DS Sector. Between the coming into force of Bill 148, proposed regulatory reforms, changes to WSIB and on-going challenges with pay equity, pension and benefit costs, employers will need to be undertaking strategic review of their practices to ensure ongoing legal compliance and over all sustainability.

At the same time, 2018 is an election year and CUPE, OPSEU and SEIU have strategically lined up many collective agreements to expire this year, thereby creating the risk of a coordinated province wide strike of DS Sector organizations as a political strategy to secure funding for wage increases.

In this topical and timely webinar DS Sector labour and employment lawyers, Cheryl Pooran and Justin Amaral, will provide their legal insights into:

  • the top 5 demands you can expect to see raised by bargaining unit members in 2018;
  • key issues that will need to be negotiated in order to ensure compliance with Bill 148;
  • strategies for successful negotiations; and
  • best practices for preparing for a labour disruption (strike or lockout).
