Politics of Work and Labour
This course examines how labour, employers and government interact to regulate how Canadians work. Students will acquire an enriched understanding of the employment environment in their career field. An historical context is first established to explain the evolution of work, unions and government labour policy in Canada. The course then examines the legislative framework before exploring such controversial employment issues as union organising, public sector collective bargaining, strikes, minimum wage, overtime, and health and safety issues. (Formerly POG 319).
