The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 113 grieved the dismissal of a bus driver after he failed to honour the terms of a last change agreement.

The driver — referred to as Driver X — was terminated by Transdev Services on Sept. 10, 2015. Driver X was fired after he violated the terms of his last chance agreement with the employer and his union.

In the agreement, all parties agreed that any violation of the employer’s transportation policies would be cause for immediate termination and that an arbitrator would have no authority to modify the discipline notwithstanding any provision of the Labour Relations Act.
