Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says the government will move ahead with plans to pass new labour legislation this spring despite a plea to slow down.
Wall says there's been a lot of consultation on labour law changes and the government has withdrawn some ideas because of that input.
He says it's time to move forward and pass the proposed Saskatchewan Employment Act.
The proposed act melds 12 workplace-related pieces of legislation into one omnibus bill.
But nine union leaders who were on the government's advisory committee said last week that the bill goes far beyond and to more places than the committee considered.
They said there should be a fuller review on the intent of the changes and whether there could be unintended consequences.
