For now, Lamont has not published anything about collective bargaining and appears to be collaborating with state union leaders. According to a report by the American Federation of Teachers, „it`s not clear what authority Minnesota and D.C. rely on when they take steps to suspend contract clauses, but it`s easy to imagine a hostile governor taking advantage of a declared state of emergency to completely undermine a state`s collective bargaining law.“ The COVID-19 pandemic has taken our lives into our own hands and is undoubtedly impacting first aid, both personally and professionally. In recent weeks, our firm`s lawyers have had a unique perspective of seeing directors from across the state of New Jersey show fantastic leadership qualities, while other directors have once again proven to be the bad leaders we`ve always known. Unfortunately, in a state of crisis, poor leaders panic and think that rules, regulations, legal laws and negotiated agreements no longer apply or must no longer be respected. When such situations occur, first aid often testifies and is the victim of administrations that take undesirable and unnecessary liberties in the functioning of their organizations. Such situations have led to flagrant and flagrant violations of collective agreements. Suffice it to say that it is the poor leaders who think they can take what they want, act as they want and make decisions unilaterally without consulting the men and women who lead them. Canada`s largest public sector union says Doug Ford`s new pandemic powers are being hijacked by employers who are using them as a loophole to circumvent collective agreements for reasons unrelated to Ontario`s pandemic response.
It is important that these measures, if implemented in accordance with the temporary injunction, can be taken, regardless of laws, regulations, collective agreements (including dismissals, seniority/services or dumping provisions) or any other agreement or arrangement that could prohibit or restrict a health service or long-term care provider. On the other hand, we have been fortunate to see some prominent leaders recognize and predict potential problems and in turn address the men and women under their responsibility to solve problems together and address them directly in order to improve all parties involved. While the directors took the time to consult with the union leadership, some residents agreed to relax the terms of their collective agreements in order to ensure the efficiency of the company and the protection of first aid and the public as a whole. . . .
