Competition and Cooperation

Small Steps Towards Reforming Canadian Labour Relations

Research Publication, Work and Economics

This policy paper presents the case for a new framework of understanding labour relations in Canada. Taking insights which move debates about labour beyond the pendulum of pro-union and anti-union policies, it proposes a new policy within a new framework.

This new framework limits the state; removes anti-competitive legislation that favour one means of workplace organization over another; and provides greater leeway for workers to easily choose and move among a variety of means of workplace organization.

In doing so, it eliminates policies which unreasonably diminish competition among unions, and fosters a competitive environment more conducive to labour relations innovation. The resulting diverse and competitive environment will lead to a more stable and more prosperous Canadian labour market.
