PSAC challenge to the Expenditure Restraint Act heard by Ontario Court of Appeal

The Ontario Court of Appeal recently heard the appeal brought by the Public Service Alliance of Canada challenging the constitutionality of the Expenditure Restraint Act. This legislation was introduced by the Federal Government in 2009 to cap wage increases in future collective agreements and roll-back increases previously agreed to by the parties in existing collective agreements. The appeal is one of three being heard across the country with respect to this legislation.

PSAC was represented by Andrew Raven and Andrew Astritis of our firm.
