In addition to acting as the employers’ organization for industry negotiations, CLR provides a range of services to its members and represents the unionized industry by serving on a number of committees and associations.
CLR Construction Labour Relations Association of Saskatchewan Inc. was formed in 1993 to effectively represent contractors working in Saskatchewan on a union-only basis.
At that time, the only labour relations organization unionized contractors could join was an organization with a membership made up mainly of contractors that worked on a non-union basis. CLR offered unionized contractors the opportunity to effectively manage labour relations in the unionized construction sector.
