After 18 months of negotiations, postdoctoral fellows at Queen’s University ratified their first collective agreement yesterday evening.

Kenora – On March 22, 2013, the Treaty Three Police Services Board announced in a letter to their officers, that they would be unilaterally changing their conditions of employment effective April 1, 2013.

The clock is ticking down to March 31st, the date the Liberal government has set for the elimination of the revenue-sharing Slots at Racetracks Program (SARP), which will have a devastating impact upon racetrack workers across Ontario.

(Thunder Bay/Chatham) - The Conservative federal budget Bill, C-45, contains amendments to the Canada Grain Act that will remove requirements that protect grain producers from multinational grain companies, by eliminating the impartial weighing inspection of grain being received at terminal elevators. It will also increase self-regulation and decrease overall inspections.
