Union files unfair labour complaint against CHS
An unfair labour practice complaint has been filed at the Ontario Labour Relations Board on behalf of Canadian Hearing Society employees.
Lawyers for the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 2073, representing the 227 workers employees in Ontario, including several in Belleville who walked off the job on March 6, have filed an unfair labour practice complaint at the Ontario Labour Relations Board.
The union claims the employer has violated the Ontario Labour Relations Act in multiple ways.
It says the society couriered 227 individual offers to striking workers by Purolator, to their home addresses on Aprl 7, even though where there is a bargaining agent, the union, the employer may not attempt to "direct deal" with individual employees.
The union's complaint also says the CHS shared information with striking workers that it never once tabled in negotiations.
The 227 workers have not had a wage increase in four years.
