It amends s. 245 on the right of employees in the public service to organize and bargain collectively and ss. 257 and 258 on representation issues in organized establishments and petitions in unorganized establishments. Sections numbered in the Order as s. 264(c) and (f) and s. 265(d) address the filing of a notice of a strike or lockout and cooling-off periods, the requirements for a decision to declare a strike or lockout, and the prohibition placed on public officials to introduce or escort replacements for strikers. The provisions of ss. 238 and the second paragraph of ss. 239 and 241 (published as ss. 237, 238 and 240) on the structuring of the labour movement are repealed, as is Letter of Instruction No. 1458 to the extent indicated in the Order.
