CLC Trade Union Guide to the Federal Employment Equity Act
The Federal Employment Equity Act, (“the Act") gives unions another tool to use in the struggle to end employment discrimination and bring equity and fairness to the workplace for women, aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities and visible minorities. It also alters the legal human rights framework within which unions operate in the federal sector. The Act also can be used by unions working in the provincial sector with employers who have Federal contracts.
