The New Frontiers of Construction Labour Relations in Western Canada

The Very Latest Cutting-Edge Strategies for every Union and Construction Company in 2019

A great many changes are happening in the world of Western Canadian construction labour relations. It doesn’t matter if you are from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba — from either the union or the management side — you need to know all the very latest legislative, regulatory and legal developments to stay on top of your game!

And that is what this event is all about. It is the one and only forum where both management and union representatives come together to discuss their problems — and the solutions to them — through cutting-edge strategies!

It is also the one conference where you can walk away with all of the latest developments in your industry. Union reps can hear management’s concerns. Construction companies can learn about the worries of unions. And both sides will end up with valuable information to help both of them.

We have assembled a first-rate faculty of union and management experts to address subjects carefully chosen to stimulate discussion and fully update your awareness of the various issues affecting construction labour relations — not to mention the best cutting-edge strategies to combat them!

They will highlight practical lessons that can be learned from concerns that have arisen recently. And you will gain valuable insights, practical tips and excellent reference papers for the future.
