Johnson said the smooth union certification is a sign the province’s single-step certification process is working.

In 2022, the B.C. government amended the Labour Code, making it easier to unionize.

Previously, the union needed to sign at least 45 per cent of workers at a job site and then hold a certification vote.

Now, if at least 55 per cent of employees at a job site sign membership cards, they automatically join the union. A vote is still required if the number of those signing up is between 45 and 55 per cent.
