Moreover, the manner in which Canada deals with the charges of unlawful obstacle by union drive is also significantly different from how USA deals with it. In Canada, this situation is handled much more swiftly in comparison with how it is handled in USA, because in the USA, such situations aren’t usually resolved till the union drive is ended (Farber, 2005).
Furthermore, in Canada, a procedure is being followed in this regard, which is called as first-contract arbitration. The foremost aim of this is to resolve any bargaining deadlock between the unions and the employers which usually takes place during the early contract negotiations, that is, after a union has been formed. After the negotiation process, either the employer or the union decides to go for the mediation and conciliation process. However, if, through the mediation and conciliation process, a voluntarily agreed-upon contract is not formed, a conciliator or a panel directs both the parties to adhere the contract, which the conciliator or the panel deems fit for both the parties. Even though, the unions and the employers rarely decides to go for this process, however, the principal aim of this is to support the negotiation process.
