Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace

Essays in Memory of Bernie Adell

The essays in this book arise from a symposium in honour of the late Professor Bernard Adell, hosted by the Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace at Queen’s University. The symposium marked the twentieth anniversary of Weber v Ontario Hydro, a Supreme Court of Canada decision that radically challenged orthodox understandings of the role of arbitration in Canadian labour law. The authors provide a thought-provoking range of ideas and insights into the labour law problems posed by Weber, invoking themes that reflect Bernie Adell’s lifelong interest in the intersection of theoretical and practical labour law, and in the institutions that shape and enforce that law in Canadian workplaces.
