The Labour Relations Framework

• How has labour been impacted by a current political, social, or economic issue—or how might it be impacted in the future?

• How might existing procedural or substantive rules governing labour relations create challenges for relationships between employers and unions in the future?

• What theoretical perspective on labour relations do you most identify with? Provide examples of how your perspective could be both a source of strength and of weakness in establishing positive labour relations in the workplace. Are there any political, social, or economic factors that could challenge you to shift your perspective?
