The president of the New Brunswick Federation of Labour says he believes the task force is another example of government red tape.
Patrick Colford says a Worksafe Board already exists with employers and workers and he doesn't think this panel will get to the bottom of things.
"I'm not convinced but any dialogue at all is better than no dialogue. From what I can gather, the stakeholders weren't being heard at the board. I don't necessarily agree with that statement," he notes.
