In Brief: Collective Bargaining
OJEN In Brief resources are designed to provide high school students with an introduction to basic legal concepts. Each resource includes a short lesson plan for the teacher; a 1-4 page plain language description of the legal topic; and activities that provide students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the topic.
Under Canadian law, unionized workers have the right to bargain with employers and governments for better working conditions and treatment. While these negotiations can significantly improve the experience and effectiveness of the workplace, employers often feel that they do so at too great a cost, threatening the ability of the organization or business to function economically. In Brief – Collective Bargaining introduces students to key legal concepts and processes that underlie the collective bargaining process and allows them to apply their learning by taking the perspective of employers or workers during a guided simulation of a contract negotiation
