Availability: Temporarily out of stock
Trade Union Law in Canada comprehensively explains the various strands of the law that affect the internal affairs of trade unions. In fact, it's the only resource designed specifically around the concerns of trade unionists. Trade Union Law in Canada:
  • Analyzes the legal character of a trade union, including legal status, security and politics
  • Reviews union structures, constitutions and the election of union leaders
  • Examines the relationship between trade unions and their members, and the relationship among members
Matters of internal discipline of union members are also examined and clearly explained, along with religious exemptions and the duty imposed by law on unions to provide fair representation. This resource comprehensively guides you through the maze of laws, regulations and policies that govern your union's day-to-day activities. The eBook version of this publication is available through your web browser, or can be downloaded to your desktop or laptop (Windows and Mac), iPad, or Android tablet.
