We’ve launched a municipal awareness effort aimed at preventing the spread of labour monopolies. We’re galvanizing support for an amendment to Ontario’s Labour Relations Act, 1995 so that municipalities are no longer considered “construction employers”.Closing this loophole would allow ALL municipalities to fairly and openly tender publically funded construction projects to all qualified contractors and workers, regardless of union affiliation, or lack thereof. Fair and open competition on publically funded construction projects ensures the best possible value for taxpayers. Our awareness effort is led by the Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA).
Our goal is to ensure that qualified companies and their workers have the opportunity to compete for local construction projectsFair and open construction competition ensures the public gets the best possible value
