MFL webinar: Why Manitoba’s Binding Arbitration Rules Matter

June 23, 2021 @ 6:00 pm7:00 pm CDT

The Pallister government wants to make big changes to Manitoba’s labour laws that will tip the scales against workers and their unions. One of the biggest changes will be the elimination of our made-in-Manitoba solution to endless strikes and lockouts, known as binding arbitration or alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Our binding arbitration rules have ensured that Manitobans have seen fewer days lost to strikes and lockouts than any other province. Join the MFL on Wednesday June 23 for a webinar to learn more about why these rules are good for workers and the economy, how they help to ensure fair contracts, and learn first-hand from workers about their experience with binding arbitration.
The webinar will feature MFL President Kevin Rebeck, UFCW 832 President Jeff Traeger and workers with recent experience with the binding arbitration process. We ask that you register in advance here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_2G0VQvP0SFyAYwgUdm3qpQ
