Overview

We’re gathering input from unions and unionized employers on how to implement changes that ensure unions share financial statements with their members, and members can choose whether to pay union dues for political activities and causes.

These changes were introduced as part of the Restoring Balance in Alberta’s Workplace Act in July 2020.

Stakeholders can inform the development of a regulation that meets their needs and protects workers’ rights.
