Three nurses at a hospital in Sudbury, Ont., each filed a grievance after applying for two open full-time positions in the microbiology department.

Each of the nurses, represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU), were screened out of the competition at an early stage and not granted an interview.

Management said that was because the posting required applicants who have at least one year of experience in microbiology.
