My new book The Law of Work was released late last fall and is already in use at universities across the country of courses in Employment Law. So far, the book includes the Common Law Regime (contract and tort law), and the Regulatory Standards Regime. In 2017, the final part of the text will be rolled out exploring the Collective Bargaining Regime, including all the legal rules that govern the unionization process, collective bargaining, industrial conflict, and collective agreement administration. This part of the book will make the book perfect for courses in Labour Law and Industrial Relations.
I’m writing the collective bargaining part now, and like the earlier parts of the book, it will include a great lineup of guest authors, including:
Professor Alison Braley-Rattai (University of Toronto): A Brief History of the Labour Movement and the Law
Professor Scott Walsworth (Saskatchewan Edwards School of Business): A Closer Look at Canadian Unions
Chris Rootham (Nelligan Power): Public Sector Collective Bargaining Law
And I’ll be hooking up with my ole law school labour law debating buddies Erin Kuzz (Sherrard Kuzz) and Jim Robbins (Cavalluzzo Hayes) to write a much needed chapter on An Introduction to Construction Labour Law.
I’m very excited about this part of the book.

The latest marketing blast for my book The Law of Work includes unsolicited comments from students at a western Canada graduate school who used the book for the first time last term.
