LSS - Legal Services Society Lawyers
The PEA has become aware of possible job action from the Association of Legal Aid Lawyers. It's possible that they will withdraw their services by April 1, 2019 if their demands for improved compensation are not met. Find more information here.
It is our intention to provide ongoing advice to our PEA members as events unfold. We want to ensure that you are kept safe from any possible negative consequences of this job action. Please see a confidential document on the PEA website for information on legal aspects of this situation. (Members must login to the website to view this document.)
We would also like to have a teleconference with all our PEA members at LSS to discuss this matter. The teleconference will also talk about the upcoming bargaining with the employer, the Legal Services Society. We will send out a message to confirm dates, so stay tuned.
Sam Montgomery has returned to her position as Labour Relations Officer and will continue to keep you aware of developments.
