Unions launch more charter challenges against Ontario law that caps wage increases
By The Canadian Press
Charter challenges are piling up against an Ontario government law capping public sector wage increases.
The Ontario Nurses’ Association also announced today that it is launching its own court case against the legislation, arguing it infringes on collective bargaining rights.
Today’s announcements come days after the major teachers’ unions filed three separate court challenges.
The law caps all public sector salary increases at one per cent per year for the next three years.
Treasury Board President Peter Bethlenfalvy has said he is confident the law is constitutional.
