What Labor Unions have Contributed to Society:

"The labor movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress. Out of its bold struggles, economic and social reform gave birth to unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, government relief for the destitute and, above all, new wage levels that meant not mere survival but a tolerable life. The captains of industry did not lead this transformation; they resisted it until they were overcome. When in the thirties the wave of union organization crested over the nation, it carried to secure shores not only itself but the whole society."

Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board laid out a plan on Tuesday May 28th (2013) at a closed meeting of nearly 500 public service executives, calling it the ‘new beginning’ for a more productive and affordable public service.  His first targets are outdated performance management practices and an archaic disability plan that costs too much and can’t deal with the escalating mental health claims of employees.

From the Canadian Human Right Commission site

The Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) encourages all employers to develop, in consultation with their employees, their own workplace accommodation policies and procedures. The implementation of such policies and procedures allows employers to provide an inclusive workplace, respond effectively to individual accommodation needs, fulfill their responsibilities under the Canadian Human Rights Act and the Employment Equity Act, and minimize the likelihood of complaints of discrimination.
