Suspension, Inappropriate, Behaviour, Personal File, Remedy, Damages, Reduced


The Grievor was suspended for inappropriate behaviour towards co-workers. The Union claims the three day suspension was without just, reasonable and sufficient cause and sought a remedy which would pay damages due to the suspension and removal of all related documents from the Grievor's personal file.

The grievance succeeds in part. Discipline was appropriate. There was nothing in the Grievor's personal record to support a three day suspension and one of the complaints warranted no discipline. The suspension is reduced to two days and the Grievor is to be compensated for losses resulting from the third day.
