A customer and sales agent at Air Canada in Winnipeg lost her fight against a suspension pending discharge matter after repeated absences from work.

Referred to only as SA, the grievor had worked for Air Canada on and off since 1998, being laid off and recalled several times. She had also more recently gained employment at another government department, and wished to keep both jobs.

In November of 2013, SA received a recall notice from Air Canada.
