No reinstatement for terminated harasser

The hospital reorganized the grievor's unit in a way she disagreed with. She did not treat the new employees, who had lower qualifications, in a respectful way. The grievor was terminated for harassment. The arbitrator found that her conduct was not worthy of termination, but that she should not be reinstated.
