In a letter dated April 14, 2021 the Honourable Don Morgan, Minister of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, invited various Saskatchewan labour leaders to participate in “discussions on potential amendments to the supervisory employment provisions of Part VI of the SaskatchewanEmployment Act.”

The letter indicates that the Ministry’s review has been prompted by challenges that the provisions violate workers’ right to freedom of association under subsection 2(d) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The letter asked in particular for unions’ experiences of the provisions’ impact on unions’ ability to certify new bargaining units and engage in meaningful collective bargaining, as well as the potential general impact of the provisions’ outright repeal.
