A group of employees at a long-term care facility in St. Catharines, Ont., won their grievance against the employer, which they said contracted out exclusive bargaining unit work.


Nurses and members of the Labourer’s International Union at Henley House had had their work re-assigned to members of the Ontario Nurses’ Association in the summer of 2014. As a result, the union’s Local 1110 chapter filed a grievance, saying the move violated the collective agreement.
