Strengthen the Labour Relations Code to Improve Fairness in a Changing Workplace

Presentation to the BC Labour Relations Code Review Panel

This submission was made to a BC government appointed panel to share the CCPA-BC's recommendations regarding policy measures to strengthen the labour relations code to improve fairness in a changing workplace, including the importance of protecting workplace rights in both employment standards and the rights provided under the Labour Relations Code. CCPA research shows that strengthening workplace rights is a key policy lever to reduce income inequality, improve quality of life for working families and reduce poverty among vulnerable workers, in particular, among low-wage immigrant and migrant workers and women.
