Mandryk: Moe taking on past NDP government record may be ill-advised

  Mandryk: Moe taking on past NDP government record may be ill-advised What made Scott Moe such an effective campaigner during the 2017-18 Saskatchewan Party leadership race was his plain-spoken earthiness. For the most part, it’s a style that has served him well as Saskatchewan premier. Moe may not have the charisma of Brad Wall who guided the Sask. Party to power 13 years ago, but the current Sask. Party leader’s what-you-see-is-what-you-get approach is likely why he’s enjoyed remarkably high personal popularity and has a lot to do with why the Sask. Party is so far ahead in the opinion polls. After all, Saskatchewan elected populists like Tommy Douglas and Grant Devine long before the term became fashionable.

No provision can require the employer to give after a telework request, but if the position is eligible for telework, he must justify his refusal.

Generalization of teleworking

Since September, companies have tended to have employees return to the site, says Eric Chevée, responsible for teleworking at CPME. This trend was slowed down from October because of the progression of the disease, he tempers.

John Ivison: Liberals' rebrand of their China policy is more about Erin O’Toole than Xi Jinping

  John Ivison: Liberals' rebrand of their China policy is more about Erin O’Toole than Xi Jinping It is a happy coincidence for the Liberals that just as new Conservative leader Erin O’Toole is blasting the government’s weak China policy, they are getting set to launch a new tougher approach to dealing with Beijing. The reframed China policy has been in the works since François-Philippe Champagne was appointed foreign affairs minister last year and is due to emerge within the next few weeks. For the Liberals, a firmer line on China can’t come quickly enough.

Workload, assumption of costs ...

"For a quick normative agreement"

Not sure that the negotiations will lead to a consensus, because the Medef has warned that it wants the text to be neither normative nor prescriptive, to the chagrin of the unions.

We are not on the idea of ​​modifying the regulatory corpus, confirms Eric Chevée, noting that since January, nearly 600 agreements on teleworking have been signed, providing in particular two to three days of teleworking per week.
