Labour Relations: The Unionized Workplace, by Laurence Olivo and Peter McKeracher, is part of Emond’s Working with the Law series.

Laurence Olivo teaches at Seneca College in the Law and Public Administration program, and is also actively involved in Seneca’s industrial relations activities. Peter McKeracher teaches labour and employment law course, and industrial relations at Durham College. Together, these gifted teachers have written the first text on labour relations for those in law and law-related community college programs.

  • Provides a historical overview of the trade union movement, along with pertinent theories and analytical models
  • Details the negotiation and administration of a collective agreement — from choosing a bargaining unit, to negotiating a first contract, to the grievance and arbitration processes
  • Places the unionized workplace in its statutory context — both federally and provincially
  • Describes the interface between provincial employment standards legislation and collective agreements
  • Identifies the influences of globalization on labour standards
  • Examines the political, economic, social, and technological factors affecting today’s workplace and speculates on how these factors will likely affect trade unions in the future
