The Association believes that it is desirable to have effective working relationships between employers and their employees and where appropriate, between representatives of employers and employees.
The Alberta Construction Association believes the current employment standards work well. Any changes should reduce administrative complexity, and foster flexible workplace arrangements between employers and employees. Mediation for dispute resolution is preferred.
