Unifor will not attend Alberta Government Consultation


On November 22, 2019 at 3:18 pm Shawn McLeod, Deputy Minister of Labour and Immigration of the Government of Alberta sent an email to Andrea Macbride, Unifor Director for Alberta and British Columbia, extending an invitation to meet Saturday, November 30, 2019 in Edmonton, Alberta regarding the United Conservative Party's election platform promise regarding labour legislation. 

The invitation was declined by Unifor, citing concerns with the lack of study and review indicating the need for such interventions, the potential conflict with existing Canadian Law regarding union finances, and the lack of sufficient notice.
