This Friday: Workshop on the Future on Collective Bargaining in the Broader Public Sector

I am Chairing a panel at this Friday’s interesting and timely workshop on the future of collective bargaining, and prospects for labour law reform in the broader public sector.  The workshop is hosted by Queens University’s Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace.

Here is the program.

In the Wake of the Drummond Report and Ontario Budget: Prospects for Reform of Industrial Relations in the Ontario Broader Public Sector

School of Policy Studies and the Centre for the Study of Law in the Contemporary Workplace, Queen’s University

This workshop brings together many of the leading labour relations and labour law experts and industrial relations leaders to consider the prospects for policy reform in industrial relations in the Ontario broader public sector, in light of the recent Drummond Commission Report on the reform of Ontario’s public services and the recent Ontario budget.

The workshop will consider:

? Basic challenges and pressures on the current industrial relations system ? Significant areas where the industrial relations system would benefit from reform ? Constitutional restrictions on government action and reform

The Keynote Luncheon address will be given by Don Drummond.  Check out the line up of top-tier speakers, including academics, union leaders, leading labour lawyers (from both management and labour sides), and economists.

Should be an interesting day.  I think there is still space available.  Details on how to register are included on the Queens’ Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace website (linked above).
