Community Benefits Agreements deliver high-quality infrastructure and a reliable tendering process. Project environments are complex and dozens of employers and hundreds to thousands of workers may come in and out over a long period of time.
Community Benefits Agreements provide a common human resource environment with consistent labour standards, wages and human resources procedures and practices while also guaranteeing there will be no strikes or lockouts for the full duration of each project. Without Community Benefits Agreements, governments will inherit unknown risks, creating significant uncertainty about costs, quality and timelines on Manitoba construction projects.
The move to ban Community Benefits Agreements is a move towards instability for our workers and communities. The move to ban Community benefits agreements is not worth the risk.
