In every country where TD operates, we support and respect the protection of human rights, adhering to, and in many cases, exceeding all applicable labour laws and standards addressing issues such as equal pay, hours of work and child labour. We also voluntarily support international proclamations about human rights, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
We have developed our own policies, guidelines and procedures to protect and promote human rights throughout our operations; for example:
When it comes to employee-management relations, we adhere to the highest standards and strive to create a positive working environment where employees don’t feel the need for third-party representation. We prefer to work directly with employees; however, we respect their right to choose third-party representation.
TD General Insurance has a long-established bargaining unit of 310 employees, or 0.36% of our total employee population, represented by the Teamsters Union at one of our Montreal locations.
