Thanks to the advocacy work of CIFFA and other business organizations and associations, the federal government is proceeding with back-to-work legislation.
On Sunday, the Government of Canada issued a Notice Paper indicating that it will introduce a bill, entitled “An Act to provide for the resumption and continuation of operations at the Port of Montreal,” on Monday morning. The notice identifies a process that will avoid some of the usual legislative steps to ensure a quick response to the labour situation.
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce is calling for swift passage of the legislation.
