Employers need to find a way to engage with their recognized unions to ensure that any new technology in the workplace is successfully implemented and that they get the maximum return on the investments they invest in new technologies. This could be done through a new technological agreement, which is in fact a screw point towards the existing recognition agreement, or as a modification of the existing agreement. “We are pleased to have reached another agreement with the Public Service Alliance of Canada and are encouraged by the progress we are making in our negotiations. Once again, this interim agreement shows that our government remains committed to agreements that are aware of today`s economic and fiscal environment, fair to workers and reasonable to Canadians. OTTAWA, January 29, 2020 /CNW/ – Unifor Local 5454 members working as Canadian air traffic controllers voted 92 per cent for their new four-year collective with Nav Canada. In organizations where workers are represented by a union, further reflection can be carried out.

The interim agreement would increase the economy and the group overall by 6.64 per cent over three years until July 2021, the smallest increase recorded last year, in line with the current economic environment.

While retraining and retraining of staff are the idealistic result of technology in the workplace, the reality is that the use of technology could be a legitimate reason for carrying out redundancy and restructuring projects, since staffing requirements in certain functions may be reduced or reduced. Organizations must continue to have extensive staff consultation and respect existing legal obligations to seek appropriate alternative roles, so that the increasing use of technology will not make these layoffs legally fair. Nevertheless, it is easy to understand that where a robot can fill in storage and deliver the product, the need for human personnel is reduced.
