Employee Grievance alleging unjust discharge.


Employee grievance alleging breach of a collective agree­ment between the parties dated August 15, 1973, in that the grievor was discharged without just cause because the "medical reasons" for his discharge are not supported by the evidence. At the hearing it was also argued on behalf of the grievor, that his grievance should be allowed because he did not receive fair notice of the grounds upon which his employ­ment was terminated. The grievor requests that he be rein­stated in his position as constable with the National Harbour Police, with full pay and benefits retroactive to the date of his release. He further requests that all reference to this action be purged from the National Harbours Board's and Government's files.
