Food and beverage manufacturer Nestlé Canada got the go-ahead from an arbitrator to change its payroll practice at its Ontario operation, despite the union’s objection.

Around October 2014, Nestlé initially advised the union and employees of its intention to change its weekly payroll system to a bi-weekly system.

Then, in May 2015, the employer formally notified employees it would be replacing the weekly payroll system with a bi-weekly one, effective July 1, 2015.
