Labour Unrest and Contingency Planning (Canada)
As business returns to normal and we recover from the pandemic, many firms are faced with challenging labour negotiations. Workers that were deemed essential during the pandemic are seeking significant gains. The labour market is tight, with most employers struggling to fill vacant positions. This has created the perfect storm. In addition, unions and management are reaching tentative agreements, only to have their members reject the contract at the ratification vote. This has created an environment where unions now sense it is time to recover past concessions.

Having a contingency plan will mitigate your risk and ensure you are able to continue business as usual and provide your labour relations team with the confidence needed to work through challenges during bargaining.
