UPDATED With Landmark Decisions Covering Key Collective Bargaining Topics

LexisNexis is pleased to announce the publication of the new edition of Canadian Collective Bargaining Law written by respected arbitrator and scholar Wesley B. Rayner. Fully updated and revised, the 2nd Edition is the complete guide to the area, providing readers with an overview of the basic principles that form the foundation of the Canadian collective bargaining system, and jurisprudential analysis on all key collective bargaining topics.

Canadian Collective Bargaining Law, 2nd Edition retains the intuitive organization of the original volume, and covers all major case law and legislative developments since the last edition was updated in 1999. During that period the Supreme Court of Canada has released several landmark decisions which modify or clarify earlier decisions that resulted from major legislative changes and Charter considerations during the previous decade. The new edition reviews these rulings as well as lower court and labour board decisions within the context of the basic principles that underpin the Canadian system of collective bargaining.

Over the course of 25 chapters, Canadian Collective Bargaining Law, 2nd Edition covers issues including the impact of the Charter, successor rights and obligations, strikes, lockouts and secondary picketing, and negotiation and enforcement of the collective agreement.
