The 17th Annual Mel Myers Labour Conference was held on March 15 & 16, 2018. The event was once again a great success! Over 350 union leaders, activists, and labour lawyers were in attendance. Topics covered included the duty to accommodate, unfair labour practices, addictions in the workplace, discipline fundamentals, assisting members with WCB claims, and workplace privacy, amongst many others.
The recipient of the proceeds of this year’s conference was the Errol Black Chair in Labour Issues at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives – Manitoba. The Errol Black Chair is a full time position that works with the labour movement across the country to conduct first-rate research that demonstrates the fundamental value of unions. The firm is thrilled to support such a worthy cause.
The conference organizers would like to thank everyone who attended the conference, and especially those who donated their time as presenters.
