A Toronto Hydro employee will not be given the extra week of vacation he thought he was entitled to, an arbitrator has decided.

Ron Fowler, a certified power line worker at Toronto Hydro, filed a grievance alongside the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) after he received 25 days of vacation as opposed to the 30 that he said the collective agreement entitled him to.
