Union Grievances, Collective Agreement, Suspension, Discharge, Interest, Punitive Damages, Compensation


Union grievances alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties bearing the expiry date 31-07-89 but kept in force by legislation, and in particular of Article 10, in that the Grievor was suspended on June 4 and discharged on June 12 without just, reasonable and sufficient cause. The Union requests an order that the Grievor be reinstated and be granted full redress in the way of any and all lost rights, earnings and benefits. In Grievance No. 096-91-00213 the Union also requests that all letters, reports and documents relating to the allegedly unjust discharge be removed from his personal file, and "reserves the right to request any additional compensation and/or damages". In Grievance No. 096-91- 00236 the Union requests that the Employer "pay moral and punitive damages". At the end of the hearing the Union representative requested "interest at the Bank of Canada rate" on any monetary compensation awarded.
