Re United Automobile Workers, Local 195, and Bendix Automotive of Canada Ltd
Union Grievance, Health Insurance Benefits, Ontario Health Services Insurance Plan, Collective Agreement, Coverage, Reimbursement
The union grieved that the employer was obligated to compensate its employees for doctors' charges over the upper limit of 90% of the 0ntario Medical Association schedule established by the Ontario Health Services Insurance Plan ("OHSIP"). The collective agreement provided that in the event of a plan such as OHSIP coming into force, the employer would integrate the plan with the existing coverages provided in the agreement so as to prevent duplication of benefits, and eliminate unnecessary costs. However, as a result of such integration, employees would not receive fewer benefits than currently provided for under the collective agreement.
