CBC reports the special law, Bill 142, puts an end to the labour dispute between unions and employers and forces 175,000 unionized construction workers back to work.

The legislation maintains current working conditions and will grant construction workers a 1.8 per cent pay raise — slightly higher than the 1.6 per cent employers were offering, but much lower than the 2.6 per cent workers were asking for.

It also imposes a period of mediation between the parties until October.
