Alberta government braces for union reaction to labour code changes

article: Journal of Commerce
The Alberta government has introduced what critics are calling anti-union changes to the province's labour code.

The legislation bans strikes and lockouts for ambulance workers and prevents unions from subsidizing contract bids by unionized contractors competing with non-union firms.

The changes will also prevent union-supporting workers from joining a non-union company to kickstart the process of unionizing the firm - a practice known as salting.
