What does the ALRB do?

The Alberta Labour Relations Board (ALRB) is an independent and impartial tribunal responsible for the day-to-day application and interpretation of Alberta's labour laws.  The role of the ALRB is to interpret and apply the legislation governing collective bargaining including:

  • how and under what conditions a trade union may claim the status of exclusive bargaining agent for a group of employees;

  • how the employer and union must bargain to reach or renew a collective agreement;

  • what kinds of union and employer conduct is prohibited; and

  • when the parties may have recourse to a strike or lockout.
