Bill 109, Employment and Labour Statute Law Amendments Act passes providing statutory protections for double hatter firefighters.

The Employment and Labour Statute Law Amendments Act passed this week bringing a solution to the way that AMO’s employer membership and their fire associations manage labour relations by incorporating provisions into the FPPA that currently exist in the Labour Relations Act. For example, volunteer firefighters who want to also serve as full-time firefighters will have the same statutory protections that have long been afforded to other unionized employees working in Ontario. See AMO’s submission supporting passage of this Bill.
