The public consultation period on a plan to review and consolidate labour law in Saskatchewan is over, but the vision for what the labour relations framework should look like in the province is anything but clear.

The governing Saskatchewan Party issued the consultation paper in May of this year and gave employers, trade unions, employer groups and other organizations 90 days to respond.

The government said the review was necessary to bring clarity to four acts governing workplaces in Saskatchewan.
