LABOUR RELATIONS PROGRAM - VOTE 1603

The role of Labour Relations is to promote a stable labour relations climate and harmonious workplace relationships in the province.

The Ontario Labour Relations Board is an independent, quasi-judicial tribunal which mediates and adjudicates a variety of employment- and labour relations-related matters under various Ontario statutes including appeals of decisions of employment standards officers and occupational health and safety inspectors.

The Public Service Appeal Boards, comprised of two statutory tribunals, the Crown Employees Grievance Settlement Board and the Public Service Grievance Board, are also independent quasi-judicial tribunals that adjudicate disputes related to labour relations of Ontario Crown employees.

Labour Management Services provide neutral, third-party assistance to trade unions and employers through collective agreement conciliation and mediation, appointment of arbitrators and collective bargaining information.
