Employer Grievance alleging illegal work stoppage.
On Saturday, May 10, 1975, Halterm Limited ordered 14 men for the work period from 1800 to 0800 hours the following morning, to perform work on M/V "Columbus Australia". The order was for "a fourteen-man gang unit to perform heavy lifts", or words to that effect. Some evidence was led by both parties at the hearing with regard to the exact terminology of this order and there was considerable discussion of its significance. Although the point is undoubtedly of importance to the parties, for the purpose of this grievance I do not find it necessary to reach any definite conclusion on the terminology used or to make any ruling on its appropriateness.
