Bill 66 Update
On June 19th, Toronto city council opted out of Bill 66 choosing to remain a construction employer bound to nine province-wide collective agreements in the Industrial, Commercial and Institutional (ICI) sector of the construction industry.
Over the past few months, several municipalities and broader public-sector agencies have faced a tough decision about their construction employer status. The Ontario Construction Secretariat provided our stakeholders with factual, unbiased information to counter much of the rhetoric that surrounded this issue. Our report “Just Not Credible” highlighted the misinformation that was being spread by non-union organizations and focused on the many benefits of the unionized ICI construction industry.
