Event description
Charter Rights in the Workplace

About this Event

Registration: 1 Day from 9:30am to 4:00pm via ZOOM Video Conference

In recent years, the Supreme Court of Canada, and some lower courts, have confirmed important rights for Canadian unions and their members. Significantly, these include Freedom of Expression (picketing, leafletting, protest, privacy rights) and Freedom of Association (the right to organize, bargain and strike). Decisions regarding Bill 29 in the health care sector, the Harper government’s back-to-work order against postal workers and the BC Teachers’ Federation win over the right to negotiate class size and composition, all combine to establish these Charter Rights. The implications of these decisions reach into every workplace, both in the public and private sector. This course provides an overview of Charter Rights, key decisions for unions, and how these cases can be used to advance our collective interests.

Instructors: Leo McGrady, Koskie Glavin Gordon and Craig Bavis, Victory Square Law Office LLP
