The Ford government introduced sweeping legislation to cap public sector wage increases. The proposed legislation represents an attack on the right to free and fair collective bargaining, and is in line with the government’s broader anti-worker agenda.
The legislation was introduced on June 5, and although the legislature has now risen until October 28, the bill will be retroactive to June 5 once passed.
OCUFA has prepared an analysis of the proposed legislation and its overall implications, including for university autonomy and collective bargaining. In addition, OCUFA has prepared an FAQ that addresses a number of technical issues that are raised in the proposed legislation.
