Centre for Global Workforce Strategy - How Minority Unionism Works in New Zealand
July 20, 2015to July 20, 2015

This presentation examines New Zealand’s experience with minority and multiple unionism, as it has developed under that country’s Employment Relations Act 2000. In particular, the consequences of New Zealand’s system for employers and employees are explored. Comparisons with Canada are made throughout. Particular attention is drawn to the key lessons of New Zealand’s experiences, especially given recent Supreme Court freedom of association decisions which have potentially called into question certain aspects of Canada’s labour relations framework.
