Unionism, Employment Standards and Politics (RETS 0665)
As many large supermarket chains are unionized, it is important for students to know the difference between a unionized and a non-unionized work environment. Students learn terms used in collective agreements and the basics of employment standards. As changes in the labour movement are often tied to changes in the political landscape, students also learn the names and locations of Canada's provinces and territories and their respective capitals, and who holds the top elected positions in BC and federally. By possessing a basic knowledge about their country, students are able to participate in such discussions as it pertains to their labour negotiations and collective agreement.
