Mr. HANSON (York-Sunbury):
10 is one to which a good deal of study has been given and we desire to make some amendments. In order to clarify them we have had a new section 10 drafted. I therefore beg to move that the section as at present printed in the bill be deleted and the following substituted therefor:
10. (1) The governor in council may by
regulation except any or all employment in any industry from the limits of hours of work fixed by this act, whenever he is satisfied that,
(a) the work of the employees must necessarily be carried on outside the limits laid down for the general working of an establishment because it is preparatory or complementary, or that,
(b) the work is essentially intermittent in that,
(1) the worker is not continuously occupied during the hours of employment, or
(ii) the work is seasonal in its nature, or
(iii) the work is of such a character that it must necessarily be performed in variable periods of employment, or
(iv) the work in its nature is subject to intervals of discontinuance or variations in supply of raw materials, or that
(c) there is an exceptional pressure of work;
Provided that fair and humane conditions of
labour in the matter of hours of work prevail in respect of such employment; and provided further that in the case of exceptional pressure of work the regulation shall be temporary.
(2) If any organizations of employers and workers concerned in the employment affected by any regulation made under this section exist, such organizations shall be consulted.
(3) Whenever it is practicable the maximum of additional hours shall be fixed by the regulations and in any such case the rate of pay for additional hours shall not be less than one and one-quarter times the regular rate.
Subtopic: BILL TO LIMIT HOURS OF WORK IN INDUSTRIAL UNDERTAKINGS
