Course Description

Designed by Franklin Law founder Ron Franklin, the Duty of Fair Representation Course is a hands on, no frills introduction to Unions’ often cited but rarely understood duty to represent their members fairly. This course is essential for any Union member who is considering whether or not to file a duty of fair representation (DFR) complaint.  Union representatives who want to get a better understanding of their obligations towards their brothers and sisters should also attend.  The Course focuses on section 74 of the Labour Relations Act, 1995, and duty of fair representation complaints at the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB). Topics include but are not limited to: The origins of the duty of fair representation; Establishing a violation of the duty of fair representation; Remedies; and Practical considerations.


Courses are held approximately once per month at Franklin Law’s office and in other areas across the Greater Toronto Area. Light refreshments are served.
