Government Administrative Histories

Nova Scotia. Labour Relations Board

The Labour Relations Board was created in 1947 as an administrative tribunal to determine questions and resolve disputes arising out of the interpretation and application of the Trade Union Act. It dealt especially with bargaining agent certification, bargaining unit membership and the enforcement of collective agreements. It had broad decision-making authority and exercised all the investigative powers of a public inquiry. The board did not itself mediate, conciliate or arbitrate industrial disputes. In 2010 the new integrated Labour Board assumed the functions of the Labour Relations Board, and the latter was abolished.

Notes: Authority record based on Statutes of Nova Scotia: 1947 c. 3, 1972 c. 19, 2010 c. 37.
