Final Offer Arbitration In Respect Of West Coast Ports Operations Act
March 27th, 2001 / 10:05 a.m.
Dale Johnston Wetaskiwin, AB
moved for leave to introduce Bill C-309, an act to provide for the settlement of labour disputes affecting west coast ports by final offer arbitration.
Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to introduce this bill which would prevent work stoppages at west coast ports. Stoppages at west coast ports have cost Canada billions of dollars over the years in lost sales and exports of grain, not to mention the impact they have had on the farming economy, on the unions and on employers.
