Stanley Howard Knowles (Whip of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation)

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (C.C.F.)

Mr. Knowles:

This bill deletes a portion of subparagraph (i) of subsection 1 of section 2 of the federal labour code in which employees are defined. Its purpose is to remove a discrimination against certain groups of employees. In other words the bill would afford to certain categories of employees, now excluded from the provisions of the act, the right of collective bargaining.
Motion agreed to and bill read the first time.

Topic:   AMENDMENT OF CHAPTER 54, STATUTES OF 1947-48 DEFINITION OF EMPLOYEE
