No evidence of harassment could be found to support a teacher’s grievance against the Nova Central School District, an arbitration board has ruled.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association (NLTA) filed the grievance against the school board on behalf of Ed Cole, a senior teacher who started working at Botwood Collegiate in 1997.

Cole reported that his fellow staff members at Botwood Collegiate began harassing him in 2003.
