A casual employee with three years’ steady service to the employer was removed from the casual list — in essence fired — following surgery that required her to be off work.

The union grieved.

L.V. began working at Seaview Manor, a long-term care facility in Glace Bay, N.S., in 2008. She worked about 40 hours per week. L.V. paid union dues and was on a seniority list.
