The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 1485 filed a grievance against Inverary Manor after the employer failed to award Patricia Gale with a temporary full-time position.

Inverary Manor is a residential, long-term care facility in Inverness, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Its elderly residents require personal care and supervision on a twenty-four-hour basis.

Employees within the bargaining unit represented by CUPE Local 1485 include dietary workers, environmental service workers, maintenance workers, cooks and continuing care assistants (CCA).
