Industrial inquiry commission – Successorship in the forest sector



On November 17, 2021, the Minister of Labour appointed Vince Ready and Amanda Rogers to form an industrial inquiry commission (IIC). The IIC is tasked with recommending ways to protect workers when contract tendering and the transfer of cutting and timber-harvesting rights fall outside of the successorship provision in Section 35 of the Labour Relations Code.
