SGEU Takes Labour Fight To The UN

Provincial union and national counterpart complaining to the international labour body
Story Tools

SGEU is taking its beef with Saskatchewan's new labour laws right to the UN.

Through it's national organisation the union that represents many of the province's public servants has lodged a complaint with the UN's International Labour Organisation.

And the national union President Larry Brown contends bills 5 and 6 make legislation extremely unbalanced and the complaint is valid.

The ILO can take up to nine months to report its findings and the Government does get a chance to respond.



Isn't it common practice to fight a new law in your own country's courts before you complain to an unelected international body?

I guess this means that they've already determined that the laws are constitutional in Canada.
