Bill 115 "An Act to Implement Restraint Measures in the Education Sector" became law on September 11, 2012.

Bill 115 impacts on the ability of education sector unions and school boards to collectively bargain as well as engage in strikes/lock-outs. Following passage of this Bill, four unions have commenced legal proceedings arguing that Bill 115 violates their Charter rights including the freedom of association.

This panel will debate the short and long term consequences of Bill 115 for the education sector in Ontario from a union, school board and academic perspective.
