A letter from your local MLA, Hon. Margaret McCuaig-Boyd
Dear Constituents,
 
In May 2016, six technical working groups began developing recommendations on how employment standards, labour relations, and occupational health and safety requirements could be applied to meet the unique needs of the agriculture industry.
 
The technical working groups that were reviewing employment standards and labour relations have completed their work. Their recommendations are now posted online and Albertans will have until April 3rd, 2017, to provide feedback to government.
 
Both working groups were chaired by an independent and impartial individuals with mediation, consensus and board governance experience. The groups included members from the agricultural sector, labour groups and technical experts.
 
With Agriculture being a major cornerstone of our constituency I strongly encourage anyone connected to the Ag Industry to review this information and provide feedback to the Government. Of course, please share this message with any and all who may find it useful. The more voices that are heard, the more we can shape Alberta into what we want it to be.
Thank you,
 
Hon. Margaret McCuaig-Boyd
MLA, Dunvegan-Central Peace-Notley
