Clara Morino filed a grievance against the Toronto District School Board after the employer assigned her the duties of a higher classification but failed to pay her the applicable rate of pay.

Morino — classified as a Level H office assistant — was assigned by the employer to the guidance office.

Her union, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 4400, maintained that in her position with the guidance office, Morino performed duties commensurate with the responsibilities of a Level J senior office assistant.
