Abstract/Citation: This Act amends the Trade Unions Act (LS 1983 - Tur. 1A) in relation to the conditions applicable to founding members (s. 5) and the documents which must be furnished to the provincial authorities in order to establish a trade union (s. 6). It also amends s. 9 (functions of executive officers, number of representatives in general congresses and other organs), s. 11 (functions of the general congress) and s. 14 (electoral procedures; ten years' active employment required for candidates for office in mandatory organs). Changes have also been made in the rules governing membership (ss. 22, 25 and 31), functions of shop stewards (s. 35), expenditures of trade unions and confederations (s. 44), transfer of assets and audits (ss. 46 and 47), removal from office (s. 53), penal provisions (s. 59) and dues check-off (s. 61). The provisions prohibiting trade unions from engaging in certain activities have been reformulated (s. 37, second para.). Finally, in s. 21, clauses 3 and 4, which prohibited students and persons carrying out religious functions and services from establishing a trade union, have been repealed. The amendment Act also contains transitional provisions.
