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 Crown Employees Grievance Settlement Board (GSB) is an independent quasi-judicial tribunal that mediates and adjudicates the labour relations disputes of Ontario Crown Employees. The GSB also provides financial and administrative services to the Public Service Grievance Board, an agency of the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services.

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