Employers ready legal assault on construction hiring policy

By Hayley Woodin | October 3, 2020

Next week, a coalition of contractors and associations will tell the BC Supreme Court that the province’s new community benefits agreement (CBA) framework breaches workers’ constitutional rights, and that the matter needs to be heard in court.

B.C.’s attorney general and Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure will argue that the BC Labour Relations Board is the appropriate venue for the petitioners’ complaints. 

This is a debate about where to debate the main issue, which is whether a CBA on two publicly funded infrastructure projects expected to cost B.C. more than $1.8 billion can fairly require workers to come from or join a select group of unions within 30 days of being on the job.
