This paper constitutes a response to the Consultation Paper on the Renewal of Labour Legislation in Saskatchewan issued by the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety in May 2012. It provides a critical review of the Consultation Paper’s orientation, namely its lack of recognition of the role of labour rights in advancing democracy, equality and economic justice. It also explores how the Consultation Paper fails to understand the historical context and principles behind several key features of the Canadian industrial relations system.
